The company was one of 10 women-owned businesses in the U.S. to receive $10,000
Newport, RI – June 9, 2021 – Flourish Collective today announced that it won the IFundWomen X Neutrogena Fund Grant worth $10,000. Ten women-owned health and wellness companies across the nation were selected to receive the grant. Flourish Collective will use the funds to continue to market its family wellness platform, the Flourish Fund Baby Registry.
“We are honored and grateful to have won the IFundWomen X Neutrogena Fund Grant. It reinforces our mission of helping to improve maternal health and wellness in the U.S. The grant money will help us raise awareness of our wellness-focused baby registry that helps parents be proactive, not reactive to the challenges of caring for a new baby,” said Melissa Bowley, Flourish Collective Founder & CEO.
With the Flourish Fund Baby Registry, families can register for gift bundles that include essential products for both mom and baby and gift cards for wellness support and services that help families thrive from pregnancy into parenthood. Our wellness services include birth and postpartum doulas, lactation counselors, newborn care specialists, sleep consultants, fitness classes, childbirth and parenting classes, healthy meals and more. Users can also create a no-stuff registry and include just wellness experiences, pregnancy and birth support, and postpartum help.
Flourish Fund registrants have access to an exclusive network of wellness providers vetted by the Flourish Collective team, so families do not have to spend hours searching for trusted providers. Currently, Flourish Fund offers virtual support across the U.S. and in-person support in the New England area.
“Parents may not exactly know what support they’ll need after their baby arrives, but that’s ok. They can use their Flourish funds on any of our provider services,” said Melissa.
Additionally, by creating an account, users get instant access to the Flourish Fund’s video library for prenatal and postpartum wellness.
IFundWomen also created a crowdfunding platform for grant applicants to raise capital for their companies. Those interested in helping to fund the Flourish Collective’s business can do so at https://ifundwomen.com/projects/flourish-fund-baby-registry
