Monica was about to have her third baby and was meeting with the doctor about treating her anticipated postpartum depression that afflicted her past two childbirths. She really wanted to nurse this baby, and asked the doctor if there was anything else she could do to avoid going on medication after the baby was born.

“Well, aside from proper diet & exercise, you could have more frequent and intense sex. Sex will release the same brain chemicals that these medications are trying to do.”

Her husband was like, “YEAH!” and Monica was like “DOUBLE YEAH!” 

This experience and many others has helped Monica coach many women and men on how a sex-first approach can strengthen marriages.
