MAMA MOJO

Feel like your li­bido has dis­ap­peared since giv­ing birth? You’re not alone. In a re­cent UK study, 83% of women suf­fered post-birth sex­ual prob­lems and were re­luc­tant to dis­cuss them. Nurse and mum-of-two Jo Kara­bin says she found great sup­port to care for her ba­bies but lit­tle dis­cus­sion or in­for­ma­tion about re-en­gag­ing with the sex­ual side of your relationship in a safe, non-threat­en­ing and non-painful way. So she founded Pash Aus­tralia, with the goal of em­pow­er­ing women to live more ful­fill­ing sex­ual lives by pro­vid­ing knowl­edge, ad­vice and ac­cess to bed­room toys. Here are Jo’s top tips for get­ting back your mojo.

1 COM­MU­NI­CATE

Many cou­ples find it hard to dis­cuss sex. Talk hon­estly to your part­ner and let him know you’re keen to rekin­dle the in­ti­mate side of your relationship. 2 IDEN­TIFY YOUR FEARS

If you had vagi­nal tear­ing from the birth, re­sum­ing a sex­ual relationship can be daunt­ing. Get the all-clear from your doc­tor then in­vest in a good lu­bri­cant. 3 DATE NIGHT

Whether you go out or stay in, make it spe­cial. Have a bath, step into an out­fit that makes you feel fab­u­lous,

do your hair and put on make-up. Just get­ting ready can help you feel ex­cited. 4 GET IN THE ZONE

For many new mums, sleep is more ap­peal­ing than sex. To help you tap into your in­ner sex god­dess, read erotic fic­tion or try stim­u­lant prod­ucts. 5 THE ‘F' WORD

Once you’ve cre­ated the per­fect date night and got your head in the sexy zone, make sure your part­ner knows you’ll need ex­tra-lov­ing fore­play be­fore you get into the phys­i­cal act. 6 MAKE & STAY IN LOVE

Healthy in­ti­macy with your part­ner is an im­por­tant part of a relationship. But you don’t need to have daily sex. Keep it fun, in­vest in a few bed­room ac­ces­sories and watch the spark stay alive. Visit www.pash­par­ties.com.au.
