  Sex - Care
Something I have to look for?

To make sure that sexual intercourse doesn’t harm your baby it’s vital to avoid a partner whose sexual history is unknown or who may have a sexual transmitted disease, like HIV, hepatitis B, or herpes and genital warts. Furthermore it can be harmful for mother and child to blow air into the vagina during practicing oral sex. That can cause an embolism. It is important that your sexual partner doesn’t have any other sexual partner. After the 4th month lying on the back isn’t recommended. Parents-to-be often experiment with new positions, which are more comfortable for the woman. Fortunately there are alternatives, such as the woman sitting on top or lying sideways.
