Sex and having a baby go hand-in-hand (for most people, although that definitely isn't always the case). Whenever you talk about having a baby, for the most part, sex is involved. Once that baby arrives, however, the sex-game changes and you don't really hear much about postpartum sex or sex after baby. Enter, the internet. Thankfully, Twitter is a thing, and there are some hilarious tweets about postpartum sex that every parent will find funny (and sad, but mostly funny, because if you can't laugh at this stuff you're in trouble.)
When my partner and I decided to continue having sex after having our daughter, and when I decided I was physically and emotionally ready, we didn't take to social media and share our postpartum sex experience like so many of our parenting counterparts. I will say, however, that hearing from other parents about the trials, tribulations and straight-up hilarities that come along with postpartum sex, helped my partner and I to remember that we weren't alone. Postpartum sex isn't necessarily easy (like, at all) and can take some time to get used to. Adding humor and solidarity to the mix made the entire process much easier.
Plus, while it can be exhausting and frustrating and difficult for new parents to find some (read: any) alone time, if you take a step back and look at the entire situation subjectively, you can't help but admit that it's honestly really funny to try to juggle parenting and sex. Like parenthood itself, postpartum sex is another challenge that has the potential to strengthen your relationship and, well, give you a few laughs.
