Congrats on the birth of your baby.

It's generally recommended to wait 4-6 weeks before having sex again to allow your body time to heal. The exact timing can vary, though, so if unsure, chat with your healthcare provider about when might be best for you.

 In the meantime, don't rush things - focus on bonding with your new baby and giving your body the rest it needs. Listen to your body, and don't feel bad if you are not ready after six weeks. There are other ways to be intimate, like cuddling, that don't involve sex. Take care!
