How can mothers increase their desire for sex?

Hilda Y. Hutcherson, MD
OBGYN (Obstetrics & Gynecology)

Ask for help. Often when women have a baby, we feel that we have to prove to the world that we can handle motherhood alone. I recall thinking, “I can do this! I don’t need help. My baby needs me, and only me.” The truth is, the baby will be just fine if left with Grandma for an afternoon so you can do something nice for yourself. “Me” time is important! Go get your hair and nails done. Take a yoga class. Take a walk in the park, alone. Buy sexy negligee, and wear it!
