Amanda Test and I chat on her podcast Find Your Feminine Fire about The Forgotten Father. Amanda's podcast is aimed primarily at mothers, so I really appreciate Amanda giving me access to her audience to enable them to have compassion for their partners and not take their behaviour so personally.
In this podcast we explored:
The man's point of view of becoming a father.
How birth can affect how a man feels sexually about his partner (the somatic reason!)
The unique challenges men face as they become Fathers, and how this plays out in the relationship.
Two common paths men go down after becoming Fathers, and why it is hard for them to communicate about these challenges.
How men can feel sidelined when they become parents and how that can affect their behaviour.
Understanding how the Inner child can show up in our relationships, and what to do about it.
What to do when your libido drops, and you want it back.
How to communicate about the post birth challenges so you can both get the healing and support you need to thrive both as parents and in your relationship.
