Pregnancy Wellness Retreat



Being surrounded by a lush tropical oasis and feminine energy. Flowers, candles, nourishing food, women laughing together, supporting one another.

Imagine being guided into juicy visualisations and relaxation to support the pregnant mind, body and soul. Gentle and fluid movement. Feeling whole, healthy and powerful.

Curious minds being fed with just enough soul food… Luxuriating in the pool and napping in the gardens.

Imagine being held in sacred space, led through beauty-filled and meaningful moments to celebrate you, and your growing baby.

Welcome to the Pregnancy Wellness Retreat, a collaboration between Soulful Birth and Hypnobirthing Geraldton.

Birth Story Integration & Healing

Would you like to gain new perspectives into your birth story? Birth is one of life’s most profound and powerful events, and an unexpected, challenging or difficult birth can evoke strong memories and a range of emotions which can linger for years, even lifetimes, manifesting in different ways.

Birth Story Healing is a gentle, guided process that helps the storyteller (you) find insight, resolution, and new meanings and bring healing to a disappointing or ‘sticky’ birth experience. The process enables the storyteller to move from shame, blame, or guilt, to actively finding new solutions, and to reclaim compassion for herself, and everyone touched by birth.


If you are motivated to find new meaning where you’ve been feeling ‘stuck’, to move towards a desired change and through vulnerability, then please contact me for a  Birth Story Healing session. These sessions are particularly valuable for any woman in preparing for a subsequent birth, making space for the new experience to unfold.

Lactation Support

Feeding your baby can be challenging. I offer in-home lactation support, to help you through those first days and weeks of breastfeeding.

I stay as long as needed to witness a full feed, hear your story and make tweaks and suggestions to support your feeding goals. I ensure you have a feeding plan that makes sense and feels right to you. I also refer you onto specialists and other therapists if I feel that’s what’s needed.

I LOVE breastfeeding. It is definitely one of the most rewarding, intimate and yet challenging experiences of mothering. Often, there are many factors that affect breastfeeding including emotional, psychological and spiritual aspects. My postnatal lactation support includes an exploration of these factors, supporting you holistically.


Feel held and nurtured as you transition into parenthood.

Birth Preparation

Honest. Intelligent. Soulful.

Grow your knowledge, determination and flexibility needed for an empowered birth.

Cath’s prenatal birth preparation sessions are dynamic, hands-on, fun, informative and thought-provoking. They build a foundation for birthing in-awareness, no matter the location or events of your birth.


Cath provides a supportive environment for you to explore the birth options that are right for you.

Sessions can complement or replace traditional hospital antenatal classes. Why not start with one session and then build on from there?

$150 single 2 hour session

$400 three x 2 hour sessions

Birth & Mama Circles

Would you like to gather with other women, other new and gestating mothers and really share, talk and connect? Women’s circles are incredibly powerful agents for self-reflection, growth, sisterhood and most importantly, support.

We will drop in deeply with each other, we will listen to others and be seen and heard ourselves. Judgement free. Mask free.

As an experienced woman of circle, Cath will hold space for self exploration and inner work. Using myth, story, art, movement, ritual and journaling to help explore aspects of ourselves, we will focus on the becoming that occurs as we settle into our new mother skins and integrate the birth experiences and early years of motherhood. Each circle explore a different topic related to birth, mothering, womanhood and transition.

The focus of the circle will be deep listening, authentic sharing and connection through the shared experience of being on the motherhood journey, for pregnant women and new mothers. It doesn’t matter how old your baby is, if you feel called to claim your seat in this circle of mothers, please do.

Let’s learn from each other, support one another, build community, connection and encourage personal growth for the benefit of all.


Placenta Encapsulation

Healing. Replenishing. Powerful. Peaceful.

Your placenta is an incredible organ! For centuries, the placenta has been honoured as a powerful and sacred medicine for postpartum (the period after birth).

It’s healing and nourishing properties can continue to be utilsed after baby’s birth, to nurture the new mother as she transitions to motherhood.

Mother Blessing

Gather with close women friends and family to celebrate you and the life growing inside of you as you transition to motherhood. Cath facilitates a nourishing, deep and connected ceremony which may include pregnancy massage, belly casting, henna, storytelling, labyrinth making, birthing beads, sharing of food, commitments to you and baby, prayer flags.


The Mother Blessing is an alternative to todays baby shower. It is a perfect gift to the mother-in-making, honouring her journey and gifting her strength, community and love as she embarks upon this journey to meet her baby.

Sacred Postpartum Session

In wise cultures and traditions, the newly birthed mother is welcomed back into the fold of her community and honoured for the journey she has taken to meet her new baby. A Sacred Postpartum session with Cath can be one-on-one, or can include members of the new mother's community - her close friends and loved ones.

The session includes ritual and ceremony, tailored to meet the new-born mother's needs and tastes, but may include a postpartum herbal/flower bath, massage, henna, traditional belly binding, a 'closing the bones' ritual.

This is a beautiful gift for any new mama, and is suitable from 2 weeks postpartum to many years later.

Doula support

A compassionate mentor to walk alongside you.


Cath provides a professional doula service which involves continuous emotional, physical and informational support during your pregnancy, birth and the early weeks of parenting.


She couples the ancient feminine art of birth support with practical contemporary knowledge, to assist you to birth in your own unique way.

Yoga for Pregnancy & Birth

Feel calm, fit, supple, confident and prepared for Birth!


Prenatal Yoga for Pregnancy & Birth provides the opportunity to develop greater vitality and awareness of your pregnant body, as well as to deepen your relationship with yourself and your baby.

Gentle postures, breath practices, pelvic toning and birth meditation will be learned to help cultivate flexibility, strength, determination and openness in preparation for labour, birth and early parenting.
