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.

Instructors Camie Jae Goldhammer, MSW, LICSW, IBCLC and Felisha Floyd, IBCLC will be teaching a 5 day, 45 hour peer breastfeeding course. In this course, students will gain skills to best support lactating families. With great care and focus Camie and Felisha have designed a curriculum that centers communities of Color while being clinically strong, culturally relevant and really fun.
