Christmas Dinner

Festive Retreat Day

Sunday 3rd December

Northumberland, North East

Come join me, Jessica Ord - Doula & hypnobirthing specialist for a day focussed purely on you and your baby - leaving you feeling rested, relaxed and calm ahead of the Christmas holidays. This special day is for both pregnant & new Mamas (those with babies under 1 - babes in arms welcome) 

Timings: 10am arrival ~ 2:30pm 


This retreat is being held at my welcoming country Farmhouse venue (NE665RA), where every detail has been carefully thought of so that you can simply arrive, unwind and treat the place as your own for the day. 


Set in 100 acres of idylic Northumbrian countryside and farmland, you'll be able to take a cosy wrapped up walk along the river, have a natter with your fellow  Mama's by the AGA and cosy up by the log burning fire in the Snug whilst learning invaluable relaxation techniques, focussing in on your body AND your emotions. 




During the course of this special day...

We'll be taking time to focus on how you are feeling during your journey into Motherhood so far (no matter where you are on that journey!) 

We'll begin the day with a sharing/ journaling circle (with warm mugs of cinnamon (decaf!) lattes, hot chocolates, speciality teas (or good old Yorkshire!) in hand. In this circle we'll be gently providing each other with a loving, listening ear.


Never underestimate the power of feeling held, supported and heard by your fellow Women! 

Jessica will be sharing with you her tried and tested methods and ideas for helping to regulate your nervous system during pregnancy & beyond; if you're a mum to be you'll also have the opportunity to explore how you can prepare and plan for a happy and healthy postpartum. 

Next up is a suptuous aromatherapy session; you'll be learning about aromatherapy and how you can incrporate it into your pregnancy, birth and new mother life. You'll be blending your very own essential oil body oil, as well as a large jar off bespokely blended bath salts.


Jessica is trained in aromatherapy & will guide and support you to explore different smells, oils, herbs and salts so that you can create (and take home with you!) perfectly tailored, beautifukl products for YOU, to support YOU with whatever you may need (be that relaxation, healing, energising, or just a lovely 'festive' feel!) 


Before lunch we'll learn some simple but highly effective grounding techniques, ending with a guided mindfulness session by the fire. 


We'll all have lunch together; Jessica will provide a gourmet deli lunch from Carnaby's Cafe. Please advise of any dietary requirements on booking. 


Lunch' this will consist of a mini quiche or Sausage roll of your choice (vegetarian options available & delicious!) with a selection of delicious hearty root veg salads, as well as a choice of drinks. If you'd rather bring your own lunch, you'll have access to the fridge, Aga, Microwave & plates/ cutlery etc. Lunch will be followed by a yummy home made selection of cakes. 


Hot and cold beverages, festive treats & cakes are included for everyone throughout the day.

After lunch...

Weather dependent, we'll take a stroll around the ground of the farm - taking in some fresh air, whilst talking through ways you can incorporate relaxation into your everyday (as well as just having a good old natter!)


After our mindful walk along the river, we'll come back to the farmhouse & grab a warm brew and a cake (or 2!) and have a sit around the fire whilst we talk a little more about self care as a Mum to be or new Mum. 


Once we're finished our tea & cakes those with little ones in tow are lovingly invited to make their way home, if this feels right for you at the time.


Those without babes in tow are able to stay on for just a little while longer for a deep relaxation session. This will consist of wrapping up in cosy throws, making yourself comfortable for a 'lights out' candle lit, starry night sky guided meditation.


Due to the nature of the length of the relaxation (around 20-30 minutes) it being in the dark, and us needing quiet... it may not be suitable for your wee ones. You will however be given a recording of the relaxation for you to listen to at home. 


I can't wait for you to join me during this special day - a truly once in a lifetime experience to leave you feeling rested, relaxed and SUPER festive!
