Since having a baby three months ago, my partner says she doesn’t love me anymore


DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner says I don’t give her butterflies any more and she doesn’t love me.

It’s destroyed me because I love her more than anything.

We had a daughter three months ago but have bickered and become distant since the birth.

If we talk, we get angry or she has a dig at me over almost anything.

It came to a head when she announced she no longer loves me. I’m 28 and she’s 25.

She had a difficult pregnancy that made us both stressed. She thought I was walking away, so protected herself by switching off her feelings.

She comes from a broken home and is used to being deserted.

DEIDRE SAYS: A first child often hits a mum like a sledgehammer. It can be wonderful but she is never off-duty. It will help if you are very hands-on as a dad.

Say you love her and want to give the relationship a chance, if only for the sake of your baby to start with.

My e-leaflet Sex Problems After A Baby can help you both. Suggest she has a check with her GP for postnatal depression.
