There are big changes happening in a woman's life by becoming a mother. Being responsible and selfless for your family and baby can be tiring, especially if you are a first time mom. From Dolce Mama's own experience as mothers, they created this holiday to let you unwind, gain back the shape and strength in your body, make amazing memories with your little ones, indulge in Italian food and hospitality, meet new friends from all around the world, and most importantly, leave feeling relaxed.
During this retreat, you will be staying at Villa Montignoso, set in an amazing location in the heart of Tuscany.
