Sex during pregnancy
Hi Doc

We found out the past weekend that my wife is 4 weeks pregnant....now obviously the subject of sex during pregnancy comes to mind and how safe it is. My wife is concerned about the " baby"  that will get hurt or something to that extend :) i have read some articles on the net stating it is safe  as long as it is comfortable for the women. Can you maybe confirm this please as i do not want to neglect this area of my marriage but also do not want to force it if it should not be done.

Thanks for your advice

It is safe to have sex in pregnancy unless there are complications.
