'M-day' Getaway

Isla Mujeres, Mexico | May 12 - 15, 2023

Mother’s Day (a.k.a. ‘M-day’) can be a difficult and emotional time when you are involuntarily childless. Whether it’s due to miscarriage, infertility, or circumstances, the pain of not being able to become a mother is profound. Trust me I know. It can be a daily struggle to come to terms with the grief, even when it’s been years. 

Are you looking for a chance to relax, rejuvenate, and connect with other childless women in a beautiful beach setting? Look no further! This all-inclusive retreat is designed for women who are childless not by choice, and offers a supportive and inclusive environment for self-discovery, growth, and new connections with women who really get you.

You’ll have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, including yoga classes, a snorkeling tour, workshops and group sessions on the unique challenges of being a childless woman. You’ll also have plenty of free time to explore the local area, relax on the private beach, or simply unwind with a good book.

“The quality of your life, ultimately depends
on the quality of your relationships”

This retreat is located in a secluded beachfront property, with comfortable accommodations and delicious meals included. Where you’ll be able to experience the love and support of a community of like-minded women.

It’s the ultimate opportunity to take some time for yourself and connect with others who understand the unique experience of being childless not by choice, especially on days like these. 

Book your spot today and get ready for an unforgettable (all-inclusive) experience!

The 'M-day' Getaway Program

Meet Your Host & Island Guide Rianna Hijlkema

My name is Rianna, originally from The Netherlands, but currently living in Argentina. I’m a multi-passionate serial entrepreneur living a nomadic life for the past 11 years. Traveling to 40+ countries and working on four continents has taught me to approach life (and business) with resourcefulness and resilience.

Sounds pretty good, right?

Yup, until infertility knocked on my door. The first 4 years I’ve kind of wasted my life (even though I was laying on white sandy beaches, hiking mountains and ‘living the life’) on the inside I felt so terribly lonely. Nowhere could I find friends who understood the challenges I was facing.

Along the way, I rediscovered my love for walking and connected with childless women all around the world. Those connections became a huge part of my recovery as I worked on my overall health and well-being. If I was a doctor I would prescribe friendships for everyone, but I’m not so… I provide opportunities instead!

And the ‘M-day Getaway’ is one of them!

This retreat is an opportunity to connect with women (like me!) who understand the triggers, confrontations and other emotions that arise on a day like this. Instead of dreading this day, we gonna create memories for a lifetime!


What Others Say About Working With Me...

"I am beyond grateful for your quality time and effort to guide me. You've inspired me to follow my heart and intuition as of lately.

Thank you for pushing me to really evaluate what I wanted, it helped so much.

Also thank you so much for your insights. Your words mean so much to me and just being around your energy fills me up with inspiration."
Carolina M.
Student Master Therapy/Psychology
"I felt lost and emotionally out of balance. The support that Rianna gave me, was the perfect gift to help me move forward. The framework she is using clarified many things, which led to revelations during the week, which helped me make new decisions. Rianna guided me to open up the different layers and then helped me flip this information into something practical for the future. Rianna was a crucial piece in the transition that I was going through."

"I contacted Rianna, because I was going through a deep down. I was feeling lost, I didn’t know where to start, I was overwhelmed with self-doubt and I had no clarity at all on where to go, or even to start. I resonated with Rianna and was provoked by her way of living her life. Rianna gave me the tools to sit down, work through them and understand why I feel a certain way. Rianna does an amazing way of guiding; very encouraging, supportive, but also challenging."
