Sex After Baby: Getting Your Groove Back

by OneTaste Living Library  Jan 25, 2012

Our friend, Dr. Cabeca gives some great insight into sex after baby.....nnIf you recently had a baby but seem to have lost your sex drive at the same time, you are not alone. It's common for new mothers to experience a loss of libido, and there are some very good reasons behind it. The good news is, you and your partner don't have to accept a lack of intimacy as a side affect of parenthood.nnAfter giving birth, a woman's body has changed tremendously. All those extra hormones will take months to stabilize, and in the meantime it is normal to feel a variety of symptoms such as decreased sex drive. One such hormone is oxytocin, which gives us those bonding and nurturing feelings. This hormone certainly serves its purpose, encouraging us to bond with and care for our babies, but it can cause us to overlook our poor husbands who would no doubt enjoy some “bonding” time of their own.nnAside from hormonal changes, there are nutritional changes as well. A woman who has just spent the last nine months growing another human being inside of her, not to mention breastfeeding that child, is bound to have deficiencies in many nutrients. This can lead to loss of energy and libido. Nutritional support is necessary to regain good health and get your groove back.nnFinally, there are very real physical changes to a woman's body during and after childbirth. There may be scar tissue from an episiotomy or difficult delivery that is causing pain during sex. There may also be changes in a woman's figure, and getting used to those changes and feeling sexy again are not always easy.nnMy sexual CPR course is designed to address all of these issues and more. Parenthood doesn't have to mean the end of your sex life. Remember, what is good for the parents and their marriage is also good for Baby.
