 Can garter snakes breed the day after giving birth?

about a month ago i found a large female garter snake, i found her again today. i think that she may have given birth yesterday, because yesterday i found 2 tiny babies(smaller than a loony when curled up) and because she was excreting allot more fluids than the other snakes. the mom and babies were found within 6 meter’s of each other.
i tried to upload pics, but they wouldn’t work

also when i found her today there was another garter snake following her, it was either a yearling or a small male.

so I’m wondering, is it possible for a garter to give birth one day and then be receptive to a male the next day?

OK, thanks, but she’s a wild snake so i cant really control it. also do you know how long a garter snake’s gestation period is and the maximum amount of times they can reproduce during a year? i don’t breed them, but I’m wondering because iv seen fresh babys from late April all the way to September.

Yeah I just took in a baby that looks like he is 2 months old... I took him in because his eyesight is bad now because something got ahold of his right eye and there is also a large scab ln his head
