What Is A Death Doula (Death Midwife)?
Death Doula? The End-of-Life Doula role is to accompany the dying person and their loved ones through the final months, weeks and days of life. The doula provides support, resources, education and friendship for those who accept and embrace dying as a period of life, not just an abrupt ending. One of the most important things that a doula does is to actively engage the one who is dying in the entire process. It gives them a voice that often is denied to them. Doulas are there to assist the family as well as the dying guiding through this difficult of time, providing emotional and spiritual support.
