Extra info Flourish postnatal groups are a journey of adjustment to a “new normal” through companions­hip, belonging and acceptance. The groups provide a space where new parents can share knowledge, as well as support and empower each other. The 10-week Flourish journey covers various topics including self-care, feeding, baby play and stimulatio­n and baby developmen­t. Parents typically pay a price set by the franchisee (prices vary) to be part of a group. However, parents who are unable to pay are not excluded.
