Generally, it is enough for her to love her son to love her partner too and often her feeling of being a woman is reduced and she is satisfied in looking after the newcomer. This happens especially after the first child, a little uncertainty, a little the body that has undergone changes, the woman doesn't want to make love or maybe she feels inadequate.
