Restful Pregnancy Day Retreat


Expecting a baby? Come to relax and reset with us in the Cotswolds.

Join Deborah Hannam and Gillian Holmes, qualified antenatal practitioners and experienced doulas, for a nurturing day at our Restful Pregnancy Day Retreat. We will guide you through relaxations, help you to feel prepared for birth and beyond and ensure you leave feeling refreshed and inspired.

The 4 AA Red Star Greenway Hotel and Spa provides a stunning setting for our retreat where you will spend the day in the sumptuous surroundings of the 16th century manor house hotel and gardens. The venue sits on the edge of the Cotswolds near to the regency town of Cheltenham and is situated in 8 acres of beautiful grounds and gardens, ideal for a warming winter walk or sunny summer stroll.

What to Expect from your Day Retreat:

We will welcome you over hot drinks and pastries, followed by shared intention setting and an opening circle in The Panel Room.

Gillian will guide you through gentle stretching, relaxation and breathing for birth, to prepare your body and spirit for the day ahead.

Take a break over coffee and homemade biscuits in The Lounge.

Back in The Panel Room, paint, draw, colour or compose to find your creative side in a session led by Deborah designed to explore your feelings around pregnancy and birth.

Drawing on our experience as doulas, consider massage techniques and self-help tools to enhance your birth experience, whether planning a home, hospital or caesarean birth.

Take your time to enjoy a delicious lunch in The Greenway’s 3 AA Rosette Garden Restaurant. Walk together in the beautiful grounds and gardens, or if you prefer relax and chat by the fireside before we begin our afternoon.

Join our expert guest speakers in The Panel Room to lead you through an afternoon of all things baby: try on slings, explore reusable nappies and plan for a positive postnatal experience.

Tea and homemade cake will be served for anyone who still has room for treats!

Regroup and learn how to connect with your baby through a beautiful doula-led self-bump massage and relaxation in our final session of the day.

We will say our goodbyes to new friends over a closing circle and bid you farewell with gorgeous goodie bags.

Fruit platter, cold drinks and sweetshop selection available throughout the day.

If you would like to extend your day with an overnight stay at the Greenway Hotel and Spa either before or after the retreat, the option to book is available: please enquire.

Please note that once booked, spaces are non-refundable except for exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the organisers.


Everything will be provided for you to ensure your comfort throughout the day, including all food and refreshments (please let us know if you have any dietary requirements or allergies).

Please wear comfortable clothes that you can move around in easily. As we are offering the option to go for a short walk please be aware of the weather on the day and bring suitable outdoor clothing if you wish to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings.
