Who is Flourish?

Flourish, a programme of the Grow Great Campaign, is a national social franchise of antenatal & postnatal groups that support, celebrate and empower new and expectant mothers through the critical first 1000 days of a child’s life.” Grow Great Campaign should be hyperlinked to the Grow Great website.

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 journey 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
