Book Review and Giveaway: From Ouch to Ahhh…

from-ouch-to-ahhhHow glorious for all of us (and our partners!) that a book has been written to help us navigate the transition back to sexual intimacy after childbirth. From Ouch to Ahhh: The New Mom’s Guide to Sex After Baby by Sarah Swofford is packed with the perfect combination of validation and practical advice

Swofford’s voice is consistently warm, humble, and best of all, helpful. This book should tuck this book beneath those mountains of flannel blankets at every woman’s baby shower.

Here is what some readers are saying about From Ouch to Ahhh: The New Mom’s Guide to Sex After Baby:

“This book is a must read for any new mom. …I read the entire thing in one sitting, I could not put it down.”

“Six months ago I gave birth …Only now is my sexual desire slowly returning and this great book reassured me I am normal and gave me helpful tips for reclaiming a fun, satisfying, loving and comfortable sexual relationship.”

“As mamas, our personal needs (especially sexual) are at the bottom of priority list. And, it always feels “greedy” to try and take care of yourself. Swofford just makes you feel ok. Ok about the doubt, the self consciousness, the discomfort, the frustration, the confusion. She makes you feel like it’s ok to have these thoughts and that you’re not alone. “
