About Us

Flourish, a programme of the Grow Great Campaign, is a national network of pregnancy and mom&baby classes that support, celebrate and empower mothers through the critical first 1000 days of a child’s life.

Flourish is a national network of antenatal and postnatal classes that supports, celebrates, and empowers mothers throughout the critical first 1,000 days of a child’s life. The programme supports parents to provide responsive caregiving to their children.

The first 1000 days of a child’s life (from conception to age two) is an opportunity to establish a foundation for children’s academic success, health and general well-being. Flourish helps moms optimise this window of opportunity in a way that is fun and memorable.

The Flourish experience is a journey of:

  • Companionship, belonging and acceptance
  • Nurturing our changing bodies and the little body (or bodies) growing inside
  • Self-love and self-care
  • Proud mothers, forging our children’s future
  • Bonding with our babies
  • Love, play and growing greatness
