Death Doula Services

It is an honor to serve as a death doula. A death doula serves as a non-medical practitioner trained to assist the client, caregivers, family, and support communities with navigating death. A death doula transforms the end-of-life experience with more ease, understanding, and love for all involved.

We are entering a time when the aging population and end-of-life numbers are rising, patients desire to die comfortably at home, and families are experiencing new roles as caregivers to the dying.

End-of-life planning can help ease fears associated with death.

As a death doula I help aids loved ones with care for the dying for all sentient beings.  With the help from a trained death doula, the end of life process is a bit more easeful, after death planning may feel lighter, and the family and friends can focus on healing together.
