Meet the founder
Hello, my name is Tynan Rhea and I created postpartumsex.com because, well... it didn't exist! Currently, all the resources are based off my own google searches, interviews with myself or interviews conducted by me with others, a scientific literature review, and my personal nerdy booklists. My hope is to grow this online resources so folks from a range of communities in North America can see themselves in the information.
