After long nights of no sleep, endless diaper changes, and being someone's human bottle, we can understand that sex after giving birth hasn't been top of your list, if anything sex now may seem a bit daunting due to just the physical changes. But, sex after giving birth doesn't have to be scary, in a way it's transformational. This is one the most intimate opportunities to get reacquainted with your body on a spiritual, emotional, and physical level and a privilege for your partner to join you on this journey of self-discovery.
Body confidence means something different to everyone, it can be that you want to improve your health and find yourself in such a journey or it can mean removing all the comparisons online so that you can realize that your body is just that — yours.
In the age of social media, we now have an abundance of access to comparison, whether that be body, lifestyle, and milestones. It can be difficult when you are not even upset with the mirror anymore, but instead deceived into believing these people on the internet is how you are expected to look like and even live like. A healthy self-image relies on beauty that isn't skin deep, so here are ways that you can achieve peace with that reflection.
Conversations about sex usually concentrate on the before and during, but how about the after? Yes, it's not as tantalizing as foreplay or passionate as sex itself, but sexual aftercare is crucial to your sexual wellness. How does everyone involved feel now that the haze of lust has dissipated?
Self-Pleasure is not selfish and should so not be a taboo! There is even research to back up that women who masturbate are more satisfied in their sex lives and more confident in overall life. Let's leave the stigma behind and move forward in the progress of self-discovery and the fine-tuning of your own body.
