Your first back-to-the-bedroom adventures after having a baby may be anything but fun. While I believe that sex after childbirth can be incredible (even better than before in some cases), I know that the task can also be totally daunting and scary. Most people know to take their time and arm themselves with lube, but there are also some postpartum sex positions that can make the whole thing much easier.
Regardless of the type of birth you've had, sex is a big deal after you've had a baby. Not only are your emotions all over the place thanks to those postpartum hormones, but you're also healing physically from delivery. Maybe you're sporting a new C-section scar or you had to have stitches to help with a vaginal tear. No matter what, sex may seem like the scariest, most unconquerable thing to do after having a baby. But it doesn't have to be. The trick to enjoyable postpartum sex is to take your time, be easy on yourself, and find the best sex position to make the romp that much better.
If you're not ready for postpartum sex just yet then, obviously, don't even attempt it. You'll find yourself feeling resentful, angry, and uncomfortable. But if your mojo is there and you're ready to bring sexy back, try one of these seven postpartum sex positions. They are perfect for post-baby sex and can help you transition back into your sex life. These don't have to be the only positions you use, but if you're nervous, they can definitely benefit you and your partner.
