Today I wanted to address some of the concerns moms have when it comes to their sexuality or sexual being. This is an issue that a lot of couples deal with, especially women who have just become new mothers.
It shows up in different ways but the most common one is a type of identity crisis. For example, there is the before motherhood identity and then there is after becoming a mother. Questions like:
Who am I as a lover?
A sexual being?
And who am I now?
It swirls and bubbles up to the surface changing the intimacy we can feel with a partner.
