In the words of the women who have been on one before, here are five reasons to book onto my Mama Retreat Day.
1. It's for all mums - not just new mums.
So come - whether your babies are 2 months, 2 years, or 42 years old. Bring your mum friends, or even your mum. We had two grandmas at the last one.
" What you've done today in bringing together a group of women in such a safe, supporting, warm and positive environment has been so empowering and nourishing, it really was a special day."
"Beautiful venue, wonderful mums and grandmas, and such a special day. I am totally chilled xx"
2. Time for yourself - slow down, relax, think.
" Recommend this to anybody looking for some time out for yourself."
"I just feel at peace now. I haven't for long time."
"I recharged my soul today."
3. Unique experiences
"I have been struggling for a while with negative feelings towards myself, but walking around the labyrinth I really felt like I CAN and WILL love myself, as I am."
"This was a truly special day for me. I learnt so much about myself, I didn't think I would get as much out of it as I did! "
"During the closing of the bones, when you read the Maya Angelou poem to me, I felt like they were the exact words I needed to hear, it's like you knew! I felt like it had been written just for me. Yet another special moment I will take from the day."
Closing the bones
4. Beautiful setting
Tofte Manor is a stunning venue. You will have time to wander and find the unusual garden seats and hidden statues.
"What an amazing magical day I had today on Chilled Mama's retreat today. Cathy is so loving, nurturing & gentle, guiding you through the day. Highly recommend this day and the location is just beautiful."
5. You deserve it.
"Anyone reading this, don't think about it, do it! I did it last weekend and it was absolutely fabulous. Can't put into words how amazing it was. All women - you deserve this time to yourself. "

The retreats take place at Tofte Manor in Bedfordshire, just north of Bedford town.
