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 6) in 2019.
After suffering with postnatal depression after her twin boys were born (Just 9 months after her daughter was 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...
