Timely resumption to sex after childbirth is generally recognized as booster to a young father’s faithfulness to his wife. On the opposite, cheating statistics have continually shown that good husbands are tempted most, and sometimes cheat on their wives, after childbirth.
Just because there are medical, biological and psychological issues that hinder the new mother from normal sexual relations doesn’t mean that the man has no such needs.
Sex for the woman at this critical time may be uncomfortable, inconvenient and painful. Not so for the man who wants sex as soon as he can get it. If a man is used to regular sex, the pressure would build up and should be managed until the woman is ready.

The woman who wants to make this time a smooth transition to normal sex after childbirth, would follow a logical process to work on herself and her husband.
Resumption of sex after childbirth is a sweet way of reassuring the father of his place in the growing family and stop his thoughts from roaming.
