About Open Circle

©Lisa Gendron | Agroterra Birth

“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 online-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.

 

Q

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!

Open Circle community is a concept long overdue [in US maternity care].  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.
