Glass Heart Days offer you the chance to slow down, take time for yourself, and think about the things that matter.
Each day is carefully planned by Nicki Herring, a writer with nearly 30 years experience as a nurse and midwife.
Typically, you will be welcomed with tea, coffee and pastries before settling down to be shown how we can use Creative Writing and Journalling to process our busy lives.
You’ll be given the chance to write and reflect; using a beautiful notebook from Flame Tree that will be supplied. There will be a quiet space if you need to remove yourself from the group, and you can help yourself to hot drinks and biscuits whenever you want to throughout the day.
A light lunch will be provided, and after lunch there will be time to do more writing, and share what you’ve been writing… but only if you want to.
Each group is limited to 14 women so nothing needs to be rushed.
REFLECTING ON CARING is a day for midwives, student midwives and maternity support workers. It looks at how we process stress, sadness, and difficulties at work, but also aims to remind us about the joy our work can bring, and the pleasures of working together in a supportive team.
REFLECTING AND RELAXING weekends take place in a spa hotel and combine a REFLECTING ON CARING day with a SPA DAY, and includes spa treatments, full board, and a night in the hotel, so that you can come away feeling spoilt and relaxed.
BIRTH STORY is aimed at mothers. It doesn’t matter if you had your baby twenty eight days ago or twenty eight years ago. You might find yourself writing about your private experience of birth… the things you have never shared. There could be things you want to let go of, and other aspects of your story that you want to hold on to and tell your child in the future.
EMPTY ARMS is aimed at women who are infertile. It is a chance to write about your journey through infertility, find ways to express what you are feeling and maybe even write about the child of your dreams. It’s also a chance to meet other women and know that you aren’t alone.
EMPTY ARMS AND RELAXING weekends take place in a spa hotel and combine an EMTPY ARMS DAY with a SPA DAY, and includes spa treatments, full board, and a night in the hotel, so that you can come away feeling spoilt and relaxed.
