The Babymoon Retreat

Weekend Childbirth Education Babymoon

Learn in luxury with our babymoon and childbirth education in an unforgettable retreat setting. 

 

How do you feel about childbirth classes? 


Imagine pairing your childbirth education with a luxurious babymoon getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Share in an experience that will bring you and your partner closer together while preparing for your little one’s arrival. 

You will learn how your incredible body works during labor, how to create the optimal hormonal flow for birth, and how to release any fear and tension surrounding pregnancy, birth, and parenting. You will also learn the art of breastfeeding and the amazing way your anatomy will synchronize with your baby to continue to nourish their growing bodies after birth.  

Enjoy a wonderful prenatal yoga class to help you move your body and find comfort, relief, and relaxation in the many changes that your body is going through. The sequence of postures, movement and breath work can help prepare your body and your mind for labor and for your rise into motherhood. 
 

We invite you to enjoy an energy treatment from a Reiki practitioner, a fer clearing session, and a luxurious prenatal massage. You will have the chance to work with an aromatherapist to blend your own massage oil for labor, learning about the qualities and physiological effects of key essential oils that can be an amazing tool during pregnancy and labor; helping you to be calm, focused and strong. 

By creating a plan for your fourth trimester you will be able to feel more relaxed and continue nourishing yourself throughout your pregnancy and as a new mother.  We help to guide you through some of the unknowns that will help to set you up for the days and weeks after birth and your own personal period of transition into parenthood. 
 

You will also enjoy a nutritious and delicious meals and snacks throughout the weekend. Take home a bag of lovely handpicked products that we as doulas absolutely love and want to share with you. Because this is such a time of scared transitions and a time to honor your changing body we also offer other mementos of your pregnancy with a beautiful maternity mini photo shoot, 
 

Our retreat program invites you to complete a pre-arrival questionnaire, ensuring your retreat experience is tailor-made to provide you with the care that you need. The experience is customizable to include relaxation and learning specific to you and your journey.

 

This is the perfect weekend getaway for those looking for the ultimate learning experience and babymoon in one!
