Sex and Relationships

With all the changes that come with a brand-new baby (or pregnancy, or trying to conceive), it’s often easy to put the relationship between you and your partner (and yes, this includes sex) on the back burner. This is a mistake, though -- and not just for the sake of your relationship. If you and your partner are getting along, baby will benefit, too. Use our sex and relationship advice to help you get through the entire process, from conception to parenthood. Before we can talk about baby, though, there’s the whole getting pregnant thing to think about. We’ll talk to you about sex positions to get pregnant, and how to keep things fun while you’re trying to conceive. Once you’re actually pregnant (yay!), lots more issues will certainly come up. Having sex while pregnant is definitely a whole new adventure, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. We have tons of advice for you on sex during pregnancy, and as you’ll soon find out (we hope!), pregnancy sex can be right up there with any other sex you’ve ever had. If trouble comes up with sex, we’ll help you with that too -- both during and after pregnancy.
