In this episode I am chatting with Dr. Lori Brotto, professor in the UBC Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, where she holds a Canada Research Chair in Women’s Sexual Health. Dr. Brotto is also the Executive Director for the Women’s Health Research Institute.
We chat about cultivating sexual desire, specifically for moms. Moms that are tired, stressed, experiencing low libido - any of the things that might affect a mom's desire. Mom life can bring all kinds of challenges and some day (or weeks or months), intimacy can feel like the furthest thing from your mind. It's easy to get caught up in what you think "should" be happening, what's "right," or "normal." Dr. Brotto offers some great ways to re-cultivate sexual desire, tips on how to get things started, and some helpful ways to reframe the situation for yourself.
This is an important conversation that doesn't get talked about enough.
