I had the most incredible experience at Mama Heaven. I felt so cared for, respected and understood. Every aspect of the retreat is so well considered from time to chill and be papered a little, time to meet other mums and to most importantly to reflect upon our new roles as mothers, from talking in 'Mama Circle' about our births to the life changes parenthood brings in a positive, constructive and meaningful way.
I also had an amazing time with my little girl, beautiful memories to treasure in the future, dancing together, walking by the sea and doing baby massage, just magical. I came away feeling like me again, so much more relaxed, calm and centred. I feel like I can be a better mum now I have has time and support to reflect. Its had a real impact on our lives as a family, can't recommend the retreat enough.
