Keeping the Spark Alive

The love that babies bring to parents is second to none, but it can also take a toll on your lives as a couple. Many couple's relationship takes a backseat during the natural adjustment period that comes with a new baby.


It’s normal to feel drained and exhausted by the end of the day. As a result, you both may find yourselves pushing your physical relationship aside, and this can create a strain—especially if you were a very “hands-on” couple before baby.

Keeping the lines of communication open is essential for both of you during times like these. Try to talk openly about what’s happening and your feelings. Make time for each other. Ask a friend or family member to babysit while you head out for a date night. And remember what caused you to fall in love in the first place; you’ll find your new rhythm in time.
