Having children is a lot of work, that’s why Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Cory Hardrict make alone time for themselves in between raising their kids, 9-year-old Cree and their baby girl Cairo, 2. Tia spoke candidly for the first time about how she intends to keep her intimate time with Cory in between work and raising children while appearing on PEOPLE’s “What To Expect” podcast with What To Expect When You’re Expecting author Heidi Murkoff her daughter Emma.

Setting the tone, host Heidi Murkoff first admitted, “We had sex dates.” The author told Mowry-Hardrict of her own approach to intimacy with her husband after kids. “We had to have sex once a week. That was the rule in our house because otherwise, we wouldn’t get around to it.”

42-year-old chimed in with her own experience. The mother of two agreed that scheduling sex is important to not neglect her husband.

“Heidi, this is the first time where I’m admitting it: We do too,” Mowry added. “And when I was younger and when I would hear that, I’d be like, ‘Why do you have to do that?’ But like you said, you do — especially with kids and with work and all that,” said Mowry. “You have to make sure that it’s not neglected in any kind of way.”

Tia also shared the “best advice” she has ever gotten about motherhood with Murkoff, telling her that it was to “sleep when the baby sleeps” — and while she “didn’t listen,” she wishes she had.

The busy mom opened up to Heidi and Emma about her battle with endometriosis and how that diagnosis led to challenges throughout her pregnancy.

“For years, I had suffered. I was going to my regular doctor, which was a family practitioner, and I would constantly tell her about my symptoms,” recalled the Sister, Sister star. “I almost felt like I was telling her about my symptoms every time I would be on my period, but the weirdest thing was it was like she wasn’t taking my symptoms very seriously.”

Endometriosis can be particularly dangerous for women, especially during pregnancy. Tia said she had to become her own advocate when addressing her reproductive health:

“You don’t want to wait until something bad happens or something scary happens in order for you to start [taking] precautions.”

Mowry said she’s been able to manage her symptoms now through proper diet and exercise.

When she’s not on mommy duty, you can find Tia on her popular Mowry’s Quick Fix Youtube channel sharing everything from quick meal recipes to makeup tutorials.
