CHILDBIRTH does not affect a woman's long-term sexual function, a new study has found. Instead, researchers in the Netherlands say, the biggest predictor of a woman's post-baby sex life is her sex life before the baby.

Dr H. J. van Brummen and her colleagues at University Medical Centre Utrecht report the findings of their study of 377 first-time mothers in the obstetrics and gynaecology journal BJOG.

The team notes that reports in the "popular media" suggest that women worry that vaginal delivery will harm their sexual function.

The researchers found that the women's sex lives one year after childbirth were unrelated to the type of delivery.

Found this today in my morning travels, and thought it might be of interest (I sure thought so). The piece at The Age is here.
