Husband Doesn't Want to Have Sex After I Had Baby

"After Having a Baby My Husband Doesn't Want to Have Sex"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I've been married for seven years, and have a great relationship with my husband. We had a great sex life up until now but since becoming pregnant that has drastically changed. During my pregnancy we were told not to have sex because I had a high risk pregnancy, which I didn't mind because my libido had pretty much died anyway, but since having given birth my libido is back but it seems my husband's isn't. 

Obviously my body hasn't gone back to what it was before (It's been six months since having given birth), but I can sense that he's not attracted to me anymore. We barely have sex and he says it's because of stress (he has a very stressful job). Other aspects of our relationship hasn't changed much though, we still get along very well, and he is still as kind and loving as always, but I don't know . . . different. Up until this point our relationship was very passionate but now it seems that the passion is pretty much gone. I don't know what to do anymore. How do I get him back?
