Did your sex life change after your baby was born? I'm sure with a newborn things are of course going to be different, but do you eventually get it back?

Yes in terms of both frequency and feeling. For me the act of sex feels so much better now. We connect on a deep level. But we don't get to do it a lot cause babies need a lot of lovin too. Yeah, you'll get it back!

Yes, I think your drive suffers for some time but it's an important part of marriage! Got to get it back again!

Yes, it does change but luckily your partner is usually just wiped out as you are. But you will get back to it. Try to make it a priority when you feel like you have recovered from labor enough. You will find a new rhythm with your partner.

It might seem like an impossible thought that you will get back into it, but you will!! It will happen, so just enjoy that newborn time.

Yes you will get back into it. But let your body heal first. It will all come back!

Yes, it changes but not for the better or worse necessarily, just different. You're connected on a new level and exhausted on a new level too. However, you'll get it back :-)!!

I feel like it has changed, but not bad per se, just a new normal. But yes, you will get it back!!

I think it has gotten better, however frequency has definately decreased.  Even if the baby/child is sleeping, we are usually exhausted at the end of the day.

It helps to keep the baby out of the bedroom, if you can. No co-sleeping, no bassinet in the bedroom. If you can remind yourself that you are more than a milk machine for 5 minutes, you stand a chance of having a sex life.

I think the sex is better afterward, but agreed less frequent. I would say it took about 6 months after delivery to feeling back to myself again physically.

I had a c-section, my vag was not torn up. We went back at it days after the baby was born, carefully... now it's better than ever and much more frequent.

Our sex life has definitely NOT been the same ever since pregnancy. Our child is now a year and a half old and we still are not what we used to be in bed. I think it takes some time and a lot of extra effort you didn't used to have to put in. We are still trying to figure it out but I try not to be discouraged because I know a lot of other couples struggle with this
