I’m so so grateful to have had this support during this time—it’s helped bring ground to an otherwise groundless space and time. Having the ability to practice yoga, receive body work, have the support of a doula, access to classes and a lending library, in a way that we could actually afford, has allowed my partner and me access to care we would otherwise not have been able to afford. This has really made all the difference in my pregnancy and continues to help me tremendously, now that I am adjusting to my baby being here. Open Circle is setting a gold standard for women’s care. It has inspired my hope and faith in what is possible for future healthcare accessibility.
