I have just returned from my third Mamaheaven retreat, with my third baby, and I loved it (the retreat, not the baby) as much as the last two. I feel safe leaving the baby in the capable hands of the creche ladies. The food is unusual and delicious. The company and sense of togetherness of the participants is always heart-warming. But what I love the most is the excellent quality of the activities, the yoga, massage etc. They take me to a place that I don't normally go in my usual day and its great to get out! Lucky us to have you, Mamaheaven. Thank you again.
