Abstract:

All parents expect sexual adjustments during the postpartum period, however few report feeling prepared for the massive changes that occur. Research reveals that common birth practices negatively influence sex and sexuality for both men and women. They may also have a psychological impact that shows up in a couple’s sexual relationship. Midwives are uniquely situated to make changes to practice and communication that can positively influence pp sexual adjustment. In addition, midwives have the potential to fill the educational gap and provide postpartum support as parents work through these changes. This session reviews research to date and offers concrete suggestions during this life transition to a new identity.

Abstract:

Sex makes a baby. But babies can be bad for sex. Six weeks after a child is born, most women are given the green light to resume sexual activity as long as the typical healing-signs of delivery – whether a vaginal or a cesarean birth – are evident, and the couple have considered contraceptive options. However, sexual concerns are common in the postpartum period, and may include loss of sexual desire, vulvovaginal dryness, difficulties with orgasm, genital pain, and loss of pleasure. For some women, these sexual difficulties can persist for months, years, or even decades. The goal of this talk is to discuss the etiology of postpartum sexual difficulties, and discuss strategies for improving sexual dysfunction that can be implemented by the health care provider.

Abstract:

Lactation consultations delve into perfecting a latch, maximizing milk supply and even recovering from giving birth. Very few visits discuss how breastfeeding can affect intimacy. The research on breastfeeding and intimacy is scarce and the assessment tools and evidence-based solutions are almost nonexistent. Perinatal providers often don’t recognize the relevance or have time to troubleshoot the inquiries. Lactation specialists understand that the situation exists but may not know how to approach the line of questioning or how to provide solutions. This webinar will illustrate the relationship between lactation-specific hormones and sex hormones. It will present the mental and physical struggles that families face when tackling the topic of returning to intimacy when breastfeeding. Providers and lactation consultants will receive recommendations on how to approach, assess and assist in resolving clients’ perceptions and concerns surrounding breastfeeding and intimacy. Discussion will offer web resources and how to add the topic into community resources.
