The retreat was the break I needed whilst being close to my baby. The highlight for me was the supportive company of females and mothers. It helped me lose fear of leaving my baby in a creche and appreciate the joy of being with my baby when I am refreshed rather than strained. The yoga classes were tailored with an understanding of what mothers need. The food was delicious (I am not vegetarian but loved it).
Totally worth the money.
