Loriann Williams

I’m in the third year of the Clinical Psychology PhD program and have been involved in the lab since June 2015. My comprehensive project involves examining the role of couple’s intimacy, during pregnancy, in postpartum sexual and relationship satisfaction, as well as in sexual function, and sexual distress in women. This project has implications for healthcare professionals providing support to families in anticipation of expected changes in sexual and relationship health during the postpartum period (e.g., education and discussion about the importance of enhancing emotional and interpersonal aspects of a couple’s dynamic relationship during pregnancy).
