Episode Notes

Melissa Bowley, Flourish Collective Founder & CEO, started her company with a vision to fill the gap in maternal healthcare and make wellness accessible to all moms. After her first child was born, Melissa struggled to find postpartum support. “Everyone focuses on the well-being of the baby, but I had just been through the wringer giving birth. I was an emotional wreck and had no idea how to care for this new beautiful baby that we brought home. We didn’t have family nearby, so we were on our own. Even with an extremely supportive husband, I felt overwhelmed. As a mom, you tend to put your own health last, and the medical world put my health last once the baby was born,” and I want to change that for mothers,” said Melissa.
