In brief: Couple's time
Hormone changes during pregnancy, just after having a baby and during breast-feeding can put a damper on sex drive.
Fatigue, changes in body image and the pressures of caring for a new baby can all contribute to changes in sexual desire. Hiring an sitter to care for your children while you and your partner work on your relationship via adult activities may help rekindle the desire.
