Abstract

Pregnancy and childbirth with partners has become very popular today around the world. But now you can observe a sharply contrasting picture of the comments of giving birth with a partner. Both positive and negative views were expressed on the feasibility and implications of involving men in the process of the birth of their child. So we decided to explore whether a birth with a partner affects sexual health of women. In order to achieve the objectives, we examined 200 women who gave birth for the first time. All examinations were performed in dynamics twice by 1.5 months and 6 months after birth. The women were divided into two groups: The first group (control) – 100 women after the first physiological labours, who gave birth without a partner; The second group (basic) – 100 women after the first physiological labours, who gave birth with her husband (the father of the child). Despite some questionable moments of a partner delivery, we believe that with proper organization and training delivery partnerships have several advantages: they do not affect the sexual life of a couple in most cases; reduce by half the development of sexual dysfunction in the postpartum period; significantly reduce maternal and child injuries.
