  • Sex with a bump

    Sex therapist Rache Foux explains why these positions can be the most satisfying when you're expecting.

  • Woman on Top

    This position allows you to control the depth of penetration and movement. It's particularly satisfying in late pregnancy, as you can guide your partner into you, as deeply as you want, while looking at each other.

  • Spoons

    This is a cosy intimate position allowing you to take the weight off your bump as you lie together on your sides, with your back against his chest. Your partner curls around your back and enters you from behind. 

  • All fours

    This position means you're able to relax your bump, which is particularly good in later pregnancy. However, talk to your partner about how deeply you want him thrust.
