Are you a new mom wondering why sex is so…different since you became a mother? You’re not alone.
Maybe you haven’t had sex yet and are worried about how it will feel. Or you fear your sex drive is simply gone for good. The truth is, having a baby can change everything you thought you knew about sexual intimacy and desire.
In From Ouch! To Ahhh…The New Mom’s Guide To Sex After Baby, sex educator Sarah J. Swofford, MPH, addresses what most new moms wonder but few know who to ask: Is something wrong with me because I don’t want to have sex? Drawing on interviews with moms of young children, women’s sexual health research, and her own personal experience as a mother of two, Swofford uncovers the “why” behind common sexual challenges and provides practical solutions to empower and reassure any new mother.
This book will help you:
-Understand that sexual challenges are normal.
-Troubleshoot issues that make sexual intimacy difficult, such as vaginal pain, breastfeeding, lack of time with a partner, and exhaustion.
-Feel less anxious about sex.
-Explore new avenues to sexual arousal.
-Identify ways to take care of yourself emotionally, physically, and sexually.
-Improve sexual communication with your partner.
From Ouch! To Ahhh...The New Mom's Guide To Sex After Baby is a valuable addition to any new mom’s digital bookshelf. It will guide you through the sexual ups and downs of early motherhood while showing you that what you learn about yourself and your relationship during this time can ultimately enhance and deepen your sexuality.
I read this book after my wife had a C-section with our second child. Although it’s intended for a female audience, I was able to better understand what my wife was going through, which eased the transition back to our regular sex life. I highly recommend this book, whether you’re a new mom or her partner.
