ConclusionFirst-time parents had varied experiences of proximity and intimacy after the birth. When they chose to prioritize each other, attraction increased, strengthening their relationship and even when busy, those who wanted to be intimate with their partner found sufficient time. During this process, there was sometimes an imbalance between the partners’ sexual needs. Intimacy was then challenged, but not necessarily weakened. New parents need information and guidance on changes that may affect proximity and intimacy in their relationship after childbirth, but receive very little information.
