Retreat registration is now closed.

We are so excited about our line up complete with lots of hands-on training and time to connect.

The Retreat at a Glance: 

Optional Thursday: CPR/ BLS for Healthcare Providers* certification and perhaps some kayaking or zip lining rounded out with dinner and maybe a front porch dance party. 

*CPR must be added to registration, it is not included in the Retreat Combo ticket.


Friday and Saturday): Karen Strange will take us through Neonatal Resuscitation of the Newborn and NRP certification*.


Finish the day with a low country boil by the pool.

*NRP has an online pre-requisite not included in the NRP fee for those who need an NRP card. Karen's covid-19  protocol includes online videos and quizzes as well as small group skills testing. We will divide attendees into groups for this portion. Information will be sent out regarding pre-retreat videos and quizzes to all who have registered. There is a Saturday NRP session that has been added for NRP only participants.

Saturday: Sessions with Karen Strange, CPM, AAP/NRP, Liz Burkholder, NP, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Trauma Specialist, Sarita Bennett, CPM, DO, Meredith Christie, CPM & Hope Freeman, PhD, IBCLC!

Sunday: ALSO® (Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics)*

full day hands on workshop with Sarita Bennett, CPM, DO. 

*This course has an online pre-requisite included in the cost of the retreat.

The schedule is tentative and subject to change.

We will apply for MEAC CEUs for all sessions and this year, as an anniversary gift, CEUs are FREE!
