We invite you to join us for three deeply restorative days specifically designed for the needs of depleted Mothers to feel deeply rested, nourished and relaxed.

Our aim is for you to feel seen, understood and honoured for the sacred transformation that is Motherhood.
Dr Oscar Serrallach, author of 'The Post Natal Depletion Cure' and Functional medicine specialist, alongside a team of facilitators & professionals deeply attuned in the needs of women, will host a this special retreat designed specifically for Mothers with young children.
While so many mums are expertly prepared for pregnancy and birth, and give our little ones all the love and nourishment they need, we are often caught off guard by the massive challenge that is postnatal recovery in the years after giving birth, and miss out on the sacred rite of passage of becoming of a Mother.
"Why Am I So Bone Tired?"
"If only I could get myself back on track."
"Why do I feel like I am failing at Motherhood?"
These are really common experiences for mums, along with feeling responsible for somehow failing to thrive. As mothers, we are often told its "normal" to feel exhausted, but we believe it is not normal. common yes, but not normal...
If you want your vitality back;
if you are seeking support and practical strategies
to return to wellbeing, and if you are open to unpacking some of the widely held untruths about motherhood,-
this retreat has been created for you.

When Dr. Serrallach first wrote about postnatal depletion on goop, he hit a nerve—particularly with the revelation that some women in his practice experience the after effects of having a child for 7-10 years later. It shouldn’t be this way, nor does it have to be: This is the comprehensive guide to women’s health for every mother—who has ever felt tired, rundown, or just not like herself. With great empathy and wisdom, Dr. Serrallach explains how to restore your health and vitality using nutrition, gentle exercises, and simple strategies to get you to finally feel like yourself again.

The best programs and solutions for health issues are born of doctors that want to help themselves or their loved ones. That is how Dr. Serrallach arrived at his understanding of postnatal depletion, and what makes this book so helpful to women with the same issue, which is a world epidemic. His book is a guide to reclaiming optimal health that any mother who has given birth in the last seven years should read.
