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.

National Wildlife Refuges: Americas Best Kept Secret
This program, presented by the Friends of Tampa Bay National Wildlife Refuges, will explore the history of the National Wildlife Refuge system including important early sanctuaries in Florida, and will address both the history and wildlife of our local Pinellas refuges, and Egmont Key. Egmont Key is one of Florida’s largest nesting bird sanctuaries, home to over 30,000 pairs of nesting birds each year.
Pat is an active volunteer and board member with the Friends of Tampa Bay National Wildlife Refuges. His work with the group includes public outreach, land management and habitat protection, and working with the interpretive docent program on Egmont Key. A long time wildlife advocate and recreational birder he believes that the preservation and restoration of wildlife habitat in Florida is key to protecting our native species.
Dave is speaking to you as a board member of Friends of Tampa Bay National Wildlife Refuges and Coordinator of the Save Egmont Key Initiative. After retiring from Baxter Healthcare where he was the Director of R&D for Kidney Dialysis research and Blood Collection systems, he decided that wildlife here in Florida now needed his help. To grow his understanding of Florida’s biodiversity, Dave became a Florida Master Naturalist by taking all three modules of the University of Florida’s science based program.
