How Mothers Perceive Their Own Sexuality
Trice-Black, Shannon
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Virginia
For women, the transition to motherhood is often a time period filled with excitement, changes, and challenges. Mothers often face changes in their own sexuality in their adjustment to motherhood. The majority of research on the sexual changes during motherhood has focused on the first year postpartum of mothers and has emphasized biological, hormonal changes. Limited research is available regarding the sexuality of mothers with preschool age children. The findings from this qualitative study provide information about mothers' perceptions of their sexuality as they adjust to the role of motherhood. These findings can provide awareness and knowledge to counselors in working with women during this special time period.
