Babies change everything, and this starts before they even arrive in the world. When you’re monitoring every molecule of food for safety and going to prenatal yoga twice a week, it’s easy to let the pending baby overwhelm everything else in your life. Often, this caution extends to the bedroom. Although many women are scared to have sex while pregnant, there are tried-and-true ways to ease that fear.
Pregnancy sex comes with a fair share of baggage. You may have worries about physically hurting the baby. Or the cultural concept of mothers as pure and selfless people may interfere with the idea of yourself as a sexual being. Whatever the case, there are plenty of ways to keep the fires going up until your delivery date.
Overall, reviewing the facts will help you put your mind at ease. Sex during pregnancy is perfectly healthy and normal, and you can do as much — or as little — as you like. Whether you and your SO are kinky, more vanilla, or somewhere in-between, you don’t have to give up your sex life just because there’s a little one on the way. It’s a great way to reaffirm your bond during this time of major transformation in your lives.
