Welcome to Parenthood - Postnatal Retreat

This retreat will allow you and your partner to focus on yourselves, while connecting with your body & baby. Time will be set aside to enjoy indulgent spa treatments, a beautiful meal in our restaurant, and take part in our nurturing mum & baby yoga classes.


You will be guided in workshops, led by our experienced facilitators, as to how you can support yourself after birthing and experiencing the new pressures that come with welcoming a newborn into your home. Both mum and partner will learn techniques to replenish their own well-being. Learn infant massage techniques focused on developing healthy bonds and securing attachment between babies and their parents / caregivers.

Our Postnatal Retreat is ideal for couples and women up to 6 months postpartum.
