We know, getting back into the swing of things after having a baby can be tricky. Maybe even a little scary. But we have a few tips for sex after baby that can make things a bit more comfortable. And we know you are busy – we’ve crammed our tips into a quick video. But maybe wait till the kids are out of the room, or pop your earbuds in. Just saying.
We know that mothers who had vaginal deliveries are often worried about tears and swelling and stitches. On the other hand, C-section mamas have a hard time just lying flat or tolerating anything touching their incision. And to top it all off, postpartum hormones, especially if you are producing milk for your baby, can leave you very, very, very (yes we used 3 very-s) dry.
Tips for Sex After Baby
Now you are armed with some valuable information about how to return to sex after baby. Remember, do not go back to intercourse before you are both physically and mentally ready. The postpartum period can be exhausting and full of change, so do not hop back into things until you are really, truly, ready.
If you are looking for the products that we mentioned in the video, you can find our link for water-based lubricant here, and you can find the link for silicone-based lubricant here (remember, silicone lubricant can stain sheets/clothing and needs a test patch on silicone sex toys or silicone medical devices like dilators). And if you purchase from our link, then we get a little bit of profit – so thank you!!!
