Is it common for women to have no sex drive after having baby?

Yes.: After baby arrives, hormones are geared to take care of the baby, not bf's/husbands, etc. Plus, deliveries create something of a tissue trauma "down there" so don't expect many urges to further stimulate the area for awhile. Give it a rest until hormones and tissues normalize. In the meantime, practice alternate forms of gratification with your partner.
