Open Circle is an education and wellness center for expecting and expanding families. We offer in-person and online childbirth + parenting education workshops, doula care, pregnancy yoga, parenting + infant development classes, infant massage and somatic education and bodywork for all ages.



Our commitment is to all families. Our program costs are income-and-resource based, allowing mothers and families of all financial means, to participate in education, holistic care, and support. Insurance-based doula care and childbirth education may be available to families who’s policies cover these services. Learn more.

COVID Offerings Update: To try to support all families, both those who choose to vaccinate and those who don’t, we offer both in-person* and live online options. At the recommendation of maternity care health professionals, all group in-person classes continue to require proof of vaccination (primary series) and masking.

Open Circle supports the whole family with newborn care and mom and baby yoga in Providence, Rhode Island.

Teaching Hiatus

Thank you for visiting Open Circle and your interest in our center. We are currently on an extended teaching hiatus.

While away from teaching, we are preparing a self-paced version of our unique, experiential-based childbirth and parenting education courses.

For parent + baby services in the community, we invite you to visit our local resources page to explore supports from local providers with a range of specialties. For prenatal yoga, please visit Full Radiance Yoga. Additional educational supports can be found on our YouTube page and Series Resources page.

Over the past 20 years, we have been nourished and had our work deepened through sharing time with each of you. It has been an honor to witness new birth and community between families grow.

As we enter our own process of gestation, transformation and eventual re-birth, we would love to continue to support thriving connection. Let us know about your family’s adventures, share reflections on your experiences at the center, and reach out for contact information of other families you met while at Open Circle.* Let’s connect!
