Imagine having an entire afternoon dedicated to you, your pregnancy and your baby...

Taking time out for yourself and your growing baby is so important during pregnancy.


Between juggling work, appointments and trying to prepare for your upcoming birth, it can feel like there's always a decision or choice to be made.

You know you want to relax more. 


And you definitely know you'd like to sleep better.

You want to start feeing more calm and relaxed for your birth but it feels hard to find the time...

Our unique pregnancy retreats have been designed with all of this in mind.

Held in collaboration with a local retired midwife, we can't wait to welcome you into this beautiful space at Gosforth Garden Village Association.


Spaces sell out quickly so please don't miss out.

You'll leave your retreat feeling refreshed, restored and totally relaxed ahead of your baby's birth.


Rest, restore, relax

Our unique pregnancy retreats are centered around you and we want you to leave feeling nurtured, supported and held in a safe space. 


Studies have proven that making the time for deep relaxation in pregnancy has so many incredible benefits for both you and your baby.


Including improving your overall wellbeing, increasing the chances of you going into labour naturally and helping you to feel more connected to your baby.

Relaxation can also help to:

  • Lower any stress or anxiety you might be feeling

  • Lower your heart rate and blood pressure

  • Help you to get a good nights sleep

  • Decrease your chances of experiencing postnatal complications, such as postnatal depression

Our gorgeous pregnancy retreats have been designed with all of this in mind.

Meet your experts

Hey, I'm Emma. Award winning Hypnobirthing and Antenatal teacher, mother of two and the founder of Blooming Births.

I'm the North Easts only recommended Hypnobirthing practitioner from local experts at Jesmond Natural & Fertility.  

I take a holistic and evidence based approach to birth, and pride myself on offering bespoke Hypnobirthing courses, developed after years of extensive training.

I'm also an affiliate member of The Royal College of Midwives and a breastfeeding peer support volunteer. I continually update my knowledge, attending training with the UKs leading midwives, doulas and birth rights consultants.

Hello my name is Jane Johnston. I trained as a nurse and a midwife, working in the NHS for over 40 years.


I developed an interest for Yoga in my early 20s which has continued throughout my life. Yoga has benefitted me personally, maintaining my functional fitness and mental health.


Since I have retired, I had the opportunity to develop my interest further through training to be a Yoga teacher at Newcastle Yoga School. I love teaching and sharing my passion for Yoga.
