Couple/Sexuality

Adapting to baby's arrival

 A few tips and tricks
  • Take the time to listen to yourself and take all the time you need in order for your desire to come back. Don’t pressure yourself.
  • Gradually make place in your daily life for tender moments with your spouse, without necessarily having sex. A moment just to be together and reconnect.
  • Ask someone you trust to babysit your little one, and have a date with your spouse… just like before you became parents !
  • Talk with your spouse about your needs, expectations and frustrations towards sexuality, and express yourself if the desire is simply not there.
