Does sex benefit your baby while your pregnant ?

Patient

Q: Does sex benefit your baby while your pregnant ? Like i heard that it benefits the child to have sex while your pregnant is this true???

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

There is evidence that an intercourse during pregnancy can benefit the fetus. Intercourse must be avoided in early pregnancy and in contraindications like low lying placenta, polyhydramnios, cervical incompetence etc. Rigorous intercourse nearing term pregnancy can also lead to spontaneous labor and preterm deliveries.

Hope this was helpful.
Regards
