My credentials on this are multifold – I have two children and one of them was born less than four months ago, so I’ve just done the ‘new mum’ thing all over again very recently. I have a number of friends ditto, plus I volunteer with a breastfeeding support group where I speak to a lot of new mums. I’m also a member of two lovely online ante/post-natal support groups so I’m in regular and intimate contact with more than 90 other mothers, and boy do we share!
We were hoping this article would reblog, but apparently we can only get a link to it, so here’s our reason for posting it, do click through and read.
Oxfordshire has a lot of people moving out here from London to start families. Property is (comparitively) cheaper, there is more open space and the sense of community is unparalleled in many towns and villages. As a sideline I volunteer with a group that helps new mothers and we see a lot of them. It is amazing how many of them have concerns about not complying with their husband’s/partner’s desire for sex. Well this article directs that question to the right place: the husband/partner himself.
