Sexuality and Birth Video and Podcast – As part of The Penny Simkin show, I was interviewed by Penny Simkin on sexuality and intimacy during postpartum. This eight minute video is going through approval to be recommended by Lamaze as a resource for parents and professionals. I’m thrilled that this free video has already proven to be helpful to people seeking connection and pleasure.  [Sexuality After Childbirth Youtube video]
