The Lowdown: Sex after baby

Let’s talk about sex!

Much of what we hear about sex in the peri- and post-natal periods has to do with "safety" and "positioning." However, there aren't many spaces where we can delve deep into our unique experiences, which include: feelings about our changing bodies, both lack of or increase in desire for our partners/others, physical exhaustion or pain, and giver-fatigue. Come join an interactive discussion to explore the science behind desire, identify the sexual challenges and opportunities associated with physical transformation, and leave with strategies for internal and relational reinvigoration.
