GELIEWE DEIDRE: MY daughter is almost a year old and my husband and I’ve not been able to be intimate since before her birth.
Ek is 30 and female. My husband is a lovely man of 35.
He tries to be romantic and do little things to turn me on but I’ve lost all interest.
I know it is an issue for him and I really want to feel that same desire, but I’m so focused on my daughter.
I’m still breastfeeding and it’s hard for me to feel sexy.

DEIDRE SYS: Ja, I hope so. It’s not unusual to feel more of a mother than a lover after childbirth.
But it’s important to have time as a couple – independent of your important role as mum and dad. Arrange to spend time alone if you can.
You may now feel more confident leaving your daughter with someone trusted.
A weekend away could work wonders for your relationship.
