Reclaim Your Sensuality: 8 Ways for Mothers to Feel Sexy and Connected to Self

Becoming a mother changes you, undoubtedly. Sometimes more than you expect. It feels as though, motherhood can make you face some real truths about yourself, and a main one can be that you haven't prioritized yourself enough. Perhaps before or after becoming a mother. This new reality can feel like a tug and war between your old life and your new one. Whether you don't feel connected to self or have had a loss of sex appeal, this is completely normal and sometimes part of the changes associated with being a parent. Most women would agree, the idea of changing diapers and feeding or burping little ones doesn't necessarily get the juices flowing or the blood rising. Just like your responsibilities, you too need to be added onto the to do list of life and reigniting your sense of self and sensuality can make all the difference in the world.

Eight empowering ways for you to feel sexy and connected to yourself:

  1. Embrace Your Postpartum Body: Embracing your postpartum body is the first step towards feeling sexy and confident. Instead of focusing on your perceived flaws (which we all have whether we are a mother or not), celebrate the strength and beauty of your body for bringing new life into the world. Practice self-love and acceptance, recognizing that your body has undergone an incredible journey.

  2. Prioritize Self-Care: Self-care is essential for new mothers to nurture their physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Set aside time each day for self-care rituals, even as simple as they may seem. Whether it's taking a relaxing bath, practicing yoga, or indulging in a skincare routine. Prioritizing self-care helps recharge your energy and promotes a sense of balance and inner peace.

  3. Connect with Your Partner: Reconnecting with your partner is an important aspect of feeling sexy and desired. Make time for intimate moments together, whether it's a romantic date night, cuddling on the couch, or simply expressing affection through touch and words. Whatever your form of love language, engage in it. Open communication and mutual support strengthen the bond between partners and enhance feelings of intimacy.

  4. Dress for Confidence: Dressing in clothes that make you feel confident and attractive can significantly impact your self-esteem. Invest in flattering and comfortable clothing that accentuates your curves and makes you feel good about yourself. Whether it's a stylish outfit or lingerie that makes you feel sexy, choose clothing that boosts your confidence and makes you feel beautiful.

  5. Practice Mindful Movement: Engage in mindful movement practices such as yoga, Pilates, or dance to reconnect with your body and cultivate a sense of sensuality. Mindful movement helps you tune into your body's sensations, release tension, and embrace your physicality with grace and fluidity. Find activities that resonate with you and allow you to express yourself freely.

  6. Explore Sensual Touch: Rediscover the pleasure of sensual touch through self-massage, partner massages, or simply caressing your own skin with luxurious oils or lotions. Sensual touch promotes relaxation, reduces stress, and awakens your senses, helping you feel more connected to your body and its innate sensuality.

  7. Nurture Your Inner Goddess: Tap into your inner goddess by cultivating self-confidence, self-love, and self-worth. Practice affirmations, positive self-talk (lots of it), and gratitude to nurture a strong sense of self-esteem and empowerment. Embrace your femininity, trust your intuition and celebrate your unique beauty and strengths as a woman and a mother.

  8. Celebrate Your Sexuality: Finally, embrace your sexuality as a natural and beautiful aspect of yourself. Explore your desires, fantasies, and preferences without judgment or shame. Whether it's through your own time, intimate moments with your partner, or seeking professional guidance, honor your sexuality as an integral part of your identity.

To conclude, embracing your sensuality after having a baby is a journey of self-discovery, self-love, and self-acceptance. Yet sometimes the road feels rough! But, by prioritizing self-care, reconnecting with your partner, dressing for confidence, practicing mindful movement, exploring sensual touch, nurturing your inner goddess, and celebrating your sexuality, you can feel sexy and connected to yourself in the midst of motherhood. Remember, you are a beautiful, sensual, and empowered woman deserving of love, pleasure, and fulfillment.
