It’s no secret that returning to sex after having a baby is complex- an understatement. Many women describe feeling like virgins again- as much a physical description as an emotional one.
Giving birth and becoming a mother has a way of bringing things to the surface. We are literally opened. Through the disassembly process, there is the possibility for deeper self-understanding and growth. We change and are changed, whether we wanted to or not.
What felt good before might not be appealing now. Many women feel confused in the midst of the identity shifts- what is sex now? From the person I am now, what do I want? How do I communicate that? What are the possibilities for deeper intimacy?
Here’s what you will learn:
-Why sex after having a baby is so complicated and mystifying
-How “low libido” is a catch-all term to try to explain the lessons our unconscious is trying to teach us.
-How this may be one of the biggest opportunities you’ll ever have to have more connected, sacred, juicy sex than even before
-Permission to stop tolerating what you don’t want and why maintenance sex is a bad idea
-Practice in identifying and communicating your true desires
-How to embark on a new chapter of your sexual evolution
