“For a community to be whole and healthy, it must be based on people’s love and concern for each other.”
~ Millard Fuller
Open Circle is a holistic wellness center for you during your pregnancy, birth and child’s early years (0-4). Every parent deserves support and community during these major life transitions. At Open Circle we trust that you want what is best for your family. We believe that access to education, different types of care and advocacy will help you make the best choices to support your unique family.
We welcome families from all backgrounds, cultures, traditions and sexual + gender orientations. Our wellness services and class costs are based on your family’s income. This allows you to participate even when insurance won’t cover the fees. We respect each family’s background and financial situation, and know that every family enriches the Open Circle community in a different way. Learn more about our mission, our focus on community building and inclusion.
Open Circle is a Perinatal Safe Spot and member of the National Perinatal Task Force. The NPTF strives to decrease barriers to access to care, and works to eliminate the racial and socio-economic maternal and infant health disparities found throughout the United States.
Open Circle community is a concept long overdue in the greater Providence area. The programs will reach women and their families by eliminating the barriers of cost and setting. Many women who wish to prepare for childbirth, or need assistance during the postpartum period, find hospitals unwelcome or intimidating. Open Circle has the potential to bring women of all ages, ethnicities, and income together for meaningful sharing and caring for each other.
