CANCELED: What is a Death Doula?


Doulagivers is the New Specialized Area of Non-Medical Health Care that is being embraced worldwide. Death Doulas are also known around the world as: end of life coaches, soul midwives, transition guides, death coaches, doula to the dying, end of life doulas, death midwives, and end of life guides.


Death Doulas are people who support people in the end of life process, much like a midwife or doula with the birthing process. It is “a new non-medical profession” that recognizes death as a sacred, natural, accepted, and honored part of life. One might say that death midwifery is to hospice palliative care as birth midwifery is to obstetrics. Death Doulas can do these services and so much more.
● Help create positive, empowering end of life plans
● Provide spiritual care, psychological and social support

● Help plan home vigils, life reviews, obituaries, celebrations of life and more.
● Educate patients and families on the new and progressive options of home wakes and natural green burials.
