New moms who are experiencing perinatal difficulties that impact their physical comfort and body image can often lose interest in sex.
“There is always a very good reason why couples stop having sex after having a baby. I tell my clients that no one is broken or needs to be fixed. It helps to understand what is getting in the way of having sex, so that you can change that or make conscious decisions about the relationship.”
Since our bodies experience change after giving birth, you might struggle feeling as desirable or beautiful as you felt before pregnancy. Even if your partner reassures you that you still look beautiful, you might still find it hard to get used to your postpartum body.
