Even if sex wasn't off the table for the first six weeks, sleep deprivation alone will most likely make a nap seem much more appealing than getting frisky under the sheets. Luckily, there are other simple physical ways to stay intimate with your spouse
— a simple back rub, holding hands, a lingering hug, or even a make-out session will help keep the spark alive and remind you of the love and affection you have for each other.
When you are cleared to "do the deed," and you feel up to it, make it a priority. Scheduling sex might seem unromantic, but making it a part of your usual routine will help keep you connected and ensure you're making time for each other. It's important to note that many women take much longer to have a sex drive after giving birth, so make sure to keep the lines of communication open and let your spouse know how you are feeling.
