MotherCare Retreat FAQs
Who is it for?
The Mother Care Retreat will be three deeply restorative days designed specifically for mums with babies from 12 months to children in primary school! It is designed to give you receive deep rest, nourishment and relaxation. You will receive a breadth of knowledge about postnatal depletion from Dr. Oscar Serrallach (author of The PostNatal Depletion Cure), learn what underpins the physical, emotional and social changes of motherhood, experience relaxing embodiment practices to support for your nervous system, and a deeply healing post natal ritual all in a safe and supported environment to share with other Mothers.
Our goal is for you to feel restored and refreshed with a deeper understanding the changes Motherhood brings, and honouring your journey as a Mother.
Can I bring my baby/child?
We know this is a key challenge for mums and we have definitely considered this in line with the overall aims of the retreat. We encourage mothers of little ones past 12 months of age when your baby/child is a bit more independent and you are able to have this time away for yourself. Dr. Oscar’s approach is that in first year with your baby, support is best received at home as much as possible. And after that time, the benefit of having some time to yourself is greatly increased. We know that all mums and all babies are different so that is offered as a guide and happy to discuss each participant's needs and circumstances individually. We are committed to ensure each mother has a restorative, nourishing time so at this time we aren’t able to offer childcare at the retreat, but we are offering 5 non-residential places on the programme to ensure that if you want to make alternative accomodation arrangements with a partner or family member, or if you are local to the Byronshire, you can attend without the residential component.
Please let us know how we can support your specific needs (ie. breastfeeding and/or connection time etc. ) and will do our best to support those needs within the schedule of the retreat.
