Sex is one of those things that changes a lot through your lifetime, isn't it? No two romps are the same, especially when you factor in differences like a new partner or a situation like pregnancy. Sex while pregnant can bring on some powerful orgasms and release a lot of tension, but it can also be uncomfortable and different. And postpartum sex? Well, it can be scary and make you a nervous wreck, but the benefits of post-baby sex can make it better than ever before.
I know. You don't believe me. You're exhausted, you're covered in spit-up, your boobs are leaking milk all over the place, and your partner forgot to pick up diapers yesterday. I get it. Motherhood has totally rocked your world and all you want when you have some free time is to wash your hair and get some uninterrupted sleep. But postpartum sex is something you and your partner can look forward to. It can help you rebuild that intimacy you may have lost during the last few months of your pregnancy. It can help you find your new groove as a loving couple with a baby. It can release some of the stress that motherhood has put on your shoulders. Just because you're a mom doesn't mean you have to let go of those sexual desires you had before. And if you're not feeling sex at all, maybe these nine benefits of post-baby sex can encourage you to get back in the saddle (I mean, if you like the cowgirl position and all.)
