Great Sex During Pregnancy, Postpartum, & Early Parenthood

Thursday, September 5th — 7:30 p.m. — $15

Are you a new parent puzzled by how and when to fit sex into your busy life? Expecting and wanting to know how to have great sex during pregnancy and/or postpartum? This workshop by educators Amory Jane and Jessie Fresh takes a fun, thoughtful, and realistic approach to staying physically intimate and emotionally connected through pregnancy, postpartum, and the first couple years of parenthood.

Amory Jane and Jessie Fresh will challenge traditional ideas about sex and kink for pregnant and postpartum bodies, go over positions that work well during all three trimesters, and share advice on how to have great sex through hormone changes, exhaustion, and new identities. We’ll also focus on postpartum healing, what to expect or prepare for after you or your partner have given birth, and how to communicate through so many major transitions. We’ll also answer any questions you may have, such as how to date each other again after becoming parents, where to have sex if you’re co-sleeping, and much much more!

AJ and Jessie hope to create an inclusive class for all kinds of people who may be going through major life, relationship, and body changes due to pregnancy hormones or becoming parents. This includes queer parents, people who are parents after adopting, sex after surrogacy or pregnancy loss, and “non-traditional” parents who may or may not be genetically related to offspring they are helping to raise.

Amory Jane is veteran sex educator and mother of a toddler, with a background in Couples & Family Therapy. Jessie Fresh is a licensed Erotic Coach who has over 13 years of experience in early childhood development, and who engineered a way to thrive in her sex life during postpartum. They are both passionate about supporting parents to have more love, connection, and joy in their lives.

A growing number of people are exploring alternatives to monogamy, through swinging, polyamory, and other types of open relationships. If you or someone you know are one of those people, this might be the workshop for you!

There will also be the option to hear about real-life triumphs and tribulations of other non-mono people in addition to learning how to find and build community. This is a 2-hour class.
