Relationships

In the first couple of weeks after your baby's birth it is normal for you or your partner to feel a little left out. The responsibility and time taken to look after a baby can leave little time for time as a couple. Bonding with your new baby can be enjoyable and tiring which means you may not even notice at first if your relationship is taking strain. It's important to talk to each other if you feel upset or concerned about any relationship problems.

Doing things as a family unit can also help, as can couple only time. If you have willing family members available to watch baby for some alone time as a couple, even if it's only an hour to have a coffee and chat, it will help you both to feel connected. When it comes to resuming sexual contact you may feel anxious about hurting your partner and she may feel conscious of the changes in her body appearance. Again talking through both your concerns can help. Intimacy does not need to include full intercourse a kiss and cuddle may be all you need in the early stages. It's important not to rush things and adjust to the changes in your relationship including a lack of sleep in the early months.
