You've recently given birth and are now in the mood to rekindle that spark that 9+ months ago resulted in your new baby (or babies). After you have a baby, when can you have sex? You may also be wondering what forms of contraception to use in this post-baby world of yours. The latest recommendation is to wait 18 – 24 months before getting pregnant again to allow your body and hormones time to recover and balance out. Did you know that waiting also reduces the risk of premature birth? Our doulas services include answering and going over every single one of your questions and concerns. Our doulas service the Orangeville, Caledon, Toronto, Brampton, and Mississauga areas.
It's important to know your birth control options!
It's no secret - for many women, the experience of having sex after having a baby can be quite different than it was before baby. It is typically recommended that women wait 6 weeks postpartum before having sex in order to minimize the risk of infection, but many women aren't aware of some of the symptoms they may experience during sex in the postpartum period even after those 6 weeks (especially from a physical standpoint - the emotional and hormonal side, well that's a whole other blog post).
Pelvic health is not something widely discussed, even within mom groups. Our guest blogger, Amanda Jones, a Pelvic Health Specialist, talks about 5 ways that Pelvic Health Physiotherapy can help the postpartum woman. We are excited to welcome Amanda to your upcoming February Mom & Baby Social in Orangeville as our guest speaker.
In our culture the word “sex” is often twisted in interpretation to mean something shameful, dirty, carnal, or explicit however without sex our human species would cease to exist.
Sex is natural, normal, healthy and good. We like sex not because we are perverts or especially liberated, but because it is an essential part of the beautiful mosaic which is the human experience. This mosaic is made up of billions of sexual relationships, leading to the birth of babies and new families, which make up our communities - communities of humans who are each on their own journey looking to partner with someone else in love and sex and continue adding numbers to the greater picture.
