9 ways sex can change after birth

Get creative

Just like with everything else, your typical sexual patterns go out the window when your baby arrives. Don’t worry! Take it as an opportunity to try something new.

Your sex life is definitely going to change, whether or not your libido changes. New parents have less time, get less sleep, and have less privacy than they used to. You might find yourself engaging in completely silent sex so as not to wake a sleeping baby, or find that your best time is sometime during the day. That’s okay! Be creative, have fun, and create a new, fulfilling sex life.
