I felt more rested after mamaheaven than I did after our two week family holiday! As mum of two girls three and under I loved having delicious healthy food and supportive interesting company where I didn't have to make the meals or clean up. Massage, yoga, birth stories and other sessions were inspiring, deeply restful and healing and my baby girl had a marvellous loving time whilst I was looking after mama. Florence House is a beautiful and comfortable place in a gorgeous location. Eye opening and unique, I might have to have a third baby just so I can come back again.
