Sexual Health After Birth

This handout, developed at IWK Health, addresses questions and concerns about sexual health that may arise after child birth: issues such as body image, fatigue, stress, hormones, new responsibilities as a parent, relationships, the birthing experience, previous trauma, and mental health.

Additionally, the Post Baby Hanky Panky site offers a series of short films (less than 1 min each) based on recent research on psychological risk and protective factors affecting both the sexual and relationship satisfaction of new parents.
