Thriving children. Healthy families. Powerful communities.
Open Arms provides community-based support during pregnancy, birth, and early parenting to nurture strong foundations that last a lifetime.
Working in the Puget Sound region since 1997, Open Arms Perinatal Services is a nonprofit focused on strong community-based support for women through pregnancy, birth, and early childhood. We currently support 17 different languages, and serve over 300 new mothers and over 300 babies each year. We carefully pair clients with trained doulas who are a cultural and/or language match whenever possible. Open Arms has served over 3,000 clients and conducted over 22,000 home visits to help improve maternal and infant health, as well as build healthy foundations for early learning. Open Arms is the leading non-profit providing doula services specifically for pregnant and parenting families in Washington State who are facing poverty. CLICK HERE for a one-page program overview.
