How To Make Sex More Pleasurable When You Are TTC
Jul 18, 2022
We’re digging into sexual health and how we can increase intimacy while TTC.
Ultimately what we all want is connection. During the fertility journey, the connection with our partner may be strained, and intimacy can be less about pleasure and more about babymaking.
What if we could reconnect and deepen our connection with our partner? What if truly being present, vulnerable, and sharing was the road to deeper intimacy and better sex life?
We can learn how to create a safe space so we can ask for what we really want in the bedroom. We can move away from the thinking mind and really feel into our body. Being present for what feels good. This can help reduce the stress hormones, which will get us in the perfect space for making our future baby.
But it doesn't have to be all so serious. We’re talking erotica, sex toys, fantasies and everything you need to know to make it fun and steamy between the sheets when you are TTC.
Today I'm excited to welcome Trish Wright to the podcast. Trish is a certified sex and relationship coach.
