Hidden Ways American Childbirth Damages People's Sex Lives - And How to Help
Description: American healthcare providers often deny or ignore the fact that the organs and hormones involved in reproduction are the same as those involved in the expression of sexuality. This denial may create physical, emotional, and relational injuries during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. In this workshop, educators, counselors, and therapists will learn the nature of such injuries and intervention approaches to help couples heal and enjoy their sexual relationship after baby is born.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: identify at least three ways in which American child birth damages couples' sex lives; describe at least three ways in which educators, counselors, and therapists can help couples resume or heal their sex lives during or after the birth of a child.
