Welcome to
The Mama Sanctuary

Pregnancy & Motherhood Hub


About Us

The Mama Sanctuary is a Pregnancy and Motherhood Hub aimed at giving mums some much needed 'Me time' without the guilt of leaving their little ones with family or a babysitter. 

Founded by Rachael Kirkwood (Mum of 5) in 2019.   

After suffering from postnatal depression after her twin boys were born, Rachael struggled to get out of the house with 3 small babies. She wanted to give other mums a place they could go to that wasn't a play centre, somewhere they could feel like their old self, somewhere to meet other mums, a baby-friendly salon that didn't smell of strong chemicals, a place to get advice on new mum worries, pre or postnatal depression, breastfeeding help and more. If only there was somewhere like this with a creche! 

The Mama Sanctuary offers all of this and more...

Free Creche for the 1st Child for the first hour (Twins & Triplets count as 1)

£4 per hour after and additional children are £4 per hour. Creche staff are fully qualified in baby and toddler room settings within nurseries (Booking is essential)
