For a while after childbirth, don't be surprised if you have little
interest in sex. Physical recovery, exhaustion, and hormonal changes often
affect sexuality after childbirth. Each woman's experience is different.
Together, you and your partner can connect emotionally and physically
by knowing ahead of time what is normal and why.
Talk with your partner about your feelings, concerns, and
expectations. Let your partner know that as you recover from childbirth, you
need extra support. Ask your partner to tell you about any needs and concerns too.
Try to set up times when you can be alone, unrushed, and
Rest whenever possible.
