A unique opportunity to enjoy a luxurious getaway aka babymoon, while getting valuable information about pregnancy & birth. This is a birth and parenting intensive in a luxurious setting with me. It is a time to reconnect as a couple and prepare for the massive changes ahead in the best possible way.
Includes early morning couples yoga and breathing exercises plus continued virtual support after the weekend and can be coupled with doula and maternity nurse services.

I created this highly specialised package for couples who are:
– busy executives & corporates
– love luxury lifestyle and extravagance
– expect personalised care and attention to detail
– want in depth & up to date information tailored to your needs
– do not want to attend traditional hospital classes but still want the right information
– excited about the prospect of a weekend away with a private midwife
It will not be “all work and no play”. In fact the focus of the weekend is on lifestyle and enjoyment. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy a luxurious getaway aka babymoon, while getting valuable information about pregnancy & birth in a way that suits you.
It is a time to reconnect as a couple and prepare yourselves for the massive changes ahead in the best possible way. I customise the experience to suit your needs and priorities, so you will get exactly what you signed up for and more.
