How We Were Born
When Melissa's first son was born, she quickly realized that she needed more support and self-care. She struggled and had little guidance on how to take care of herself, her postpartum body or new baby. She soon realized all the families around her were struggling too, whether it was sleep deprivation, postpartum depression, challenges breastfeeding or recovering from birth.
In that moment Melissa's mission became finding a solution to improve maternity care in the US.
Flourish Care is maternal healthcare company that empowers families with wellness programs and insurance-reimbursed community care, including doulas, from pregnancy to parenthood.
