Chilled Bump
Retreat Day

 

Apologies - I'm not doing any in person retreats in 2024.
" I was looking forward to taking a day to slow down and just take time out from everyday business and today achieved exactly that. The labyrinth was very therapeutic and gave me a feeling of clarity."
 
Take time out away from the busy-ness of everyday life to relax and enjoy your pregnancy, bond with your baby and prepare for birth in a really mindful and positive way.


"I was surprised how much I got out of the labyrinth. The relaxations really worked and I felt that I recognised the tensions in my body and noticed them leaving. I had time to relax and had time on life and look to the future." 

You're juggling work, appointments, and preparation. There doesn't seem to be any time to just think about your baby, about you, about your relationship, and the changes that are coming. There are so many decisions to be made and discussions to have, choosing the pram, deciding about maternity leave, working out what tests to have, and what antenatal classes fit best. 

 

You have worries that keep you up; worries about your baby, the birth, your changing body, being a mum, your relationship, money, and the effect on other children and yourself. You know you want to relax more. You'd like to sleep better. You'd like to tune in to your baby and start connecting. Everything is in your mind, and your body is not your own anymore. You're meant to be 'blooming' but you just feel tired, and stressed!

 
"Cathy is a very well-informed, experienced and calming person. I really enjoyed her focus on us not feeling we 'had' to do anything, which mirrors her approach in the advice she gave when we asked questions about birth. I was really pleased there was no agenda on telling us things about birth but we were free to ask questions and pick her wealth of experience."

 

Did you know that at the end of your pregnancy your heart is working as hard as someone running a marathon?!

It's because of all the extra blood you are pushing around your body.

Your organs have moved out of the way to make room for your growing baby. Your bones have separated, your spine has lengthened. Your bladder has been squashed. One way or another your body will open to give birth to your bay. You deserve one day!

 

Time for yourself

Time and space to just think, to be yourself

Time for your baby

Tune in and connect with your growing baby, feel the bond grow stronger

Time to relax deeply

And just maybe, just maybe, just by enjoying the relaxation and gentle movement you will pick up skills to help you relax (relaxation, breathing, yoga), to help with sleep, reduce stress, which will also help with the birth, and beyond.

 

This special pregnancy retreat day will leave you feeling relaxed, in control, and positive about the journey ahead.   The ripples from the day with stay with you for the rest of your pregnancy, the birth, and to life with your baby.
