Open Arms will continue to provide Birth Doula services for their (American Indian and Alaska Native) AIAN and African American/Black clients. The PHPDA grant supports funding for at least 27 births. Based on health outcomes and community needs, Open Arms will expand stipends to include Spanish-speaking doulas and clients. In 2016, over 50% of the clients that we served identified as African American, AIAN, or Latina.
