The Venue

NEW PLACE HOTEL, SHIRREL HEATH

I have personally hand picked the beautiful New Place Hotel as the setting for our retreat day.

As you enter the ornate wrought-iron gates, meander through the picturesque surroundings and step into the enchanting New Place Hotel, an air of comfort and relaxation greets you. Seamlessly blending traditional and contemporary spaces, New Place Hotel is situated within 32 acres of landscaped gardens with a Grade I listed manor house.

The charming countryside setting and superb facilities make New Place Hotel perfect for an indulgent escape to spend some you time.


Workshops & Classes

PREGNANCY YOGA

Using gentle moves and breathing techniques you will deeply connect with your bump and have a truly relaxing experience. You'll be encouraged to focus on breathing in and out slowly and deeply through the nose.

Previous yoga experience is not necessary, all moves can be adapted to suit different stages and various pregnancy ailments.

Research suggests that prenatal yoga is safe and can have many benefits for pregnant women and their babies.

This class is fully accredited by Fedant - The Federation of Antenatal Educators.

Gemma is generously offering a free sensory bag when you book in for 10 sessions of “Yogassage” and 20% off a baby massage course exclusively to those attending our retreat when your little one arrives.


Relax, Breathe and Birth workshop

The Wise Hippo is a new approach to birthing. We believe that a positive birth experience is a state of mind, it’s not defined by what happens in labour and birth, but by how a woman feels about her baby’s birth.

This workshop is an introduction to the full birthing programme and includes the essentials from the programme. Within our session you will not only learn about the anatomy and physiology of birth, but how our minds are connected to our bodies and how we can use this to our advantage. Learn how to become an expert in relaxation so that you can feel calm, relaxed and in control in the lead up to and during your baby’s birth. You will learn 2 essential breathing and relaxation techniques to discover how to use your breath during labour to enable the birth cocktail of hormones to flow in just the right way.

We understand it’s your birth so we will be allowing you to take the time to consider what is important to you, we will be exploring questions such as ‘what do you want your birthing environment to be like?’ Instead of planning a birth, what we will do is gather ideas, thoughts and information so that we can create a path of preferences. This will not only enable you to strive for the birth that you want, but also manage if your paths deviate from this, which sometimes they do. Knowing that this is ok whilst remaining calm, relaxed and in control. We will also be exploring the best Birthing Positions to support an easier more comfortable birth.

This course is fully Accredited by the Royal College of Midwifery and FEDANT

Kate is generously offering 25% off a group course/1:1 course with The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme - Wiltshire & Hampshire, a comprehensive antenatal course which also includes a 1:1 postnatal support session after the birth of your baby.


50% off a maternity session & 25% off a newborn session

Having a maternity session is a beautiful opportunity to connect with your partner and or younger children. While I can guide you, I love watching your personalities mix, and defined characteristics of relationships with each other reveal themselves. I’m here to calm your nerves and I ensure even the most ‘camera shy’ individual will ease into relaxation to capture beautiful moments. The best time to book in for your maternity session is within the 8th - 9th month of your pregnancy.

Lifestyle newborn sessions include newborn, parents and siblings and take place in the comfort of your home. Sessions are calm, natural and focus on the connection and love in your family. Sweet snuggles, those adoring looks as you admire your new baby, and your babies tiny fingers wrapped around yours - these are some of the precious moments that will be included in your gallery.


Treatments

mini Hand or foot Pamper treatment

A gentle, soothing massage can do wonders for your body when you're pregnant. Choose from either a relaxing hand massage or unwind those tired ankles and feet with a blissful foot massage to soften and go away feeling like your walking on air.

When you're pregnant, there are certain areas near your ankles and on your feet that you need to be careful not to push too hard. Gemma is fully accredited in Pregnancy massage, Abdominal and Full Body massage so you can relax knowing you massage is being performed by a well-trained practitioner.

Slow down and pause. Reconnect with your breath—bring yourself home into your body.
