Sex after giving birth can be a bit tricky, since certain positions can be uncomfortable, or even painful!

Having sex after giving birth is something that's on a lot of married couples' minds.

Granted, it can be a bit tricky to have sex after giving birth due to the scars and the wounds that still have yet to heal completely.

That's why it's important for couples to know which positions work best and would provide the most pleasure with the least amount of pain and discomfort.

You can try these positions.

1. Spooning

Lying side by side, or spooning, is great for moms who underwent a C-section since it doesn't put any pressure on the abdomen, which means there's no pressure on the C-section scar.

It also allows moms to control the speed and depth of penetration, so that sex can be more comfortable and enjoyable.

2. Woman on top

This position is great for moms since they get to be in control. This means that they can move to get themselves comfortable and find just the right spot that won't make sex painful.

It's also fun for moms since they get to be the one to control the pace of lovemaking!

3. Missionary

A classic position for couples, this is a tried and true method that's easy, and comfortable even for moms who just gave birth.

This position helps keep pressure off the abdomen and the perineum.

It's good for couples who want to slowly ease back into sex after having a child.

4. Doing it on a chair

This sounds tricky, but the only thing that you'll need is a sturdy chair.

Have your husband sit on the chair, then you can get on top and then do it on the chair.

One thing to remember is to avoid doing it "doggy style." It will put a lot of pressure on the perineum, and it's hard for moms to control the rate and depth of penetration, which can sometimes be painful.
