Sex during pregnancy is fine for healthy pregnancies.

Would you believe that there is actually a good medical reason for many women to have sex during pregnancy?

It seems that having sex can not only get you pregnant, but it can get you out of it too. Doctors have known for a long time that a great natural way to induce child birth is to have sex!

Which Sexual Positions Suit Pregnant Women

According to the Baby Center Australia web site (yes, American spelling of the word ‘centre’) there are a number of positions suited to pregnant women.

The problem for most new parents-to-be is the fear of hurting the baby during sex. Fortunately sex during pregnancy is safe (for a normal pregnancy) right up to the third trimester. However if you are having any problems with your pregnancy you are well advised to seek your doctors advice first.

Be Understanding

Keep in mind that this is a time that can be as stressful as it is exciting so your partner’s libido may fluctuate or even be non existant.

While women have a clear reason for the changes they are feeling, men too can be awkward at this time. It is not uncommon for men to be particularly fearful of hurting or crushing the baby and some also worry about having sex with an unborn baby ‘present’. For many it’s almost like having a teenage child standing there watching them – obviously very unsettling.
