Pregnancy Day Retreats
Welcome to Galway’s Pregnancy Retreat Day held twice a year April 2022 and November 2022 in Ballinfoile Castlegar Neighbourhood Centre. Open to expectant Momma’s from mid second trimester to due time and their Birth Partners (optional).
This day has evolved over the years and been totally inspired by the pregnant women who came before you, for you! After listening to women’s stories, anxieties, concerns and amazing feedback from previous events this day was born!
We have sourced the best birth workers and professionals in their field in Galway. Our special team woman’s health physiotherapist Sinead Lennon, Doula, Birth Trauma healing and Gentle Birth Instructor Bairbre Brook, Midwife, Educator and Lactation Consultant Aisling Dixon and Psychotherapist Emer Hennelly.
Together with myself we share an abundance of warmth, passion, knowledge and experience. For one day in one venue to help ease and settle you into this pregnancy and beyond!
Whether its first, second or more this day will inspire you to consider your choices and options. Guiding you towards reaching your potential and capabilities during this pregnancy with a sense of confidence and relief! Aspiring to support the best pregnancy, labour and birth experience.
Join us to explore, inspire each other, discuss, relax, learn and laugh together! Building a support network early on of like minded expectant Momma’s and Birth Workers.
Some of our kind feedback from previous retreat days…
‘I am a Physiotherapist working in women’s health in the HSE primary care. I think it would be amazing to have workshops similar to this one held for women during their pregnancy as part of a public service. It may prevent further complications down the road and empower women to self manage pregnancy related symptoms which we are seeing more and more of in our services.‘ Grainne – Clare
