Parental Control, Ep 77: Let’s Talk About Sex After Childbirth

Editor of My Baba Ellie Thompson welcomes maternal health advocate and journalist Clio Wood to the show to discuss the launch of her new book ‘Get Your Mojo Back’, which focusses on the topic of sex after birth.

This podcast episode breaks the silence around the topic no one is talking about: how to have enjoyable sex after birth, with some sound and sensitive advice on how to get your sex life back on track.

Sex after birth

83% of new mums go through some form of sexual dysfunction and pain post-pregnancy, and sex after childbirth can be a daunting prospect whatever your circumstances. We talk about the impact of your new arrival, the role of hormones and post-pregnancy body shape, and how all these things can make sex feel very different. Clio shares her expert advice on how to get back on track when it comes to sex, intimacy and pleasure after birth.
