By: Amber Trentham: I set off to Herefordshire with my baby daughter with some trepidation, having never navigated a long journey on my own with her before: I’m not one of those relaxed mums – with my daughter as with my son before her, I have always erred on the side of neurotic. However, as soon as London drifted away, and she to sleep, I began to feel a long forgotten sense of independence stir inside me, a sense of [...]

HEAVEN FOR MAMAS Louise Randall samples the delights of the Mamaheaven retreat in rural Herefordshire I’d never been on any kind of retreat before (unless you count staying in bed rather than face the washing up). Neither for that matter had Poppy. I’m quite sure that we couldn’t have chosen a better place to start. I’d read a beautiful article about someone’s experience of Mamaheaven (you can find it on their website), which had brought tears to my eyes and [...]

MAS AND SPAS by Gilly Smith Its always hard to find time to relax as a parent,but are yoga and spar retreats an option? It’s a tough job being a parent. We get little thanks for the 24-hour room service and pampering we offer our little lords and ladies, and any time out is usually spent doubling up as cleaner.

Nappy Days Amy Raphael has an uplifting experience at a mother and baby yoga retreat in the Welsh borders If life was fair, Mamaheaven would be offered on the NHS. As it is, this country’s first weekend retreat for mums with babies up to the age of 18 months doesn’t come cheap.
