This afternoon is the first time we’re welcoming partners and babies along too. Our intention is that babies (up to walking / 1yr) stay with partners (unless they need a feed of course!) for the first couple of hours before we bring you all together. If you’re a mum coming on your own, there’s no limit as to how ‘post’ you are ‘natal’. We had two mums on our last retreat whose babies were years rather than weeks old.
