How do we bridge the gap between our needs and our partners’ needs?

Yesterday at mom’s group we talked about connecting with our partners in a way that feels true and good to us. There sometimes be pressure and expectations around having sex and many women find that they are just not interested and that many times there is discomfort.

So how do we bridge the gap between our needs and our partners’ needs? We discussed ways to feel intimate with our partner. Beginning with small stuff (like a movie) and then moving towards greater intimacy, taking baby steps. 

Speaking about our disinterest in sex but also our wanting to be close can be a great starting point for problem solving together. Speaking up can seem hard but often it brings the intimacy we seek.  Try it and see what happens.

Relationships go through a lot of changes in the first year of your baby’s life- you might as well learn together as you walk the sometimes bumpy path.
