"Care, comfort and choice for the dying and those who love them"
You are facing death for yourself or your loved one, or thinking about death and what your future may bring. It can feel scary, confusing and uncomfortable. Most people believe death and dying is done one way; the way it always has been. They don’t know they have choices. Or, if they do, they’re not sure how to turn those choices into realities. Imagine feeling informed, calm, comfortable and supported. You are unique in life. You are also unique in death.
You can create the experience you want.
What is a doula? Doula is a word from ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves." While best known for supporting women through childbirth, doulas have also served the dying for centuries. A doula creates a soft landing place at the bookends of life. I provide a continuum of care to meet your needs, from pre-planning to after-death care.
I can partner with you to help create the experience you want whether:
You wish to first explore, then discuss and finally share your end of life choices and wishes with your loved ones. You want to write down your wishes in a personal, meaningful way, and you want your documents completed clearly and stored properly ~ End of Life Doula
You seek companionship for the dying (yourself or your loved one) at the time of transition ~ Death Doula
You need in person support after your loved one’s death ~ Mourning Doula
You would love to have a home funeral for yourself or a loved one, but don’t know where to start ~ Home Funeral Doula
Your loved one has died, and you’re not sure what to do with their belongings ~ Organizing Doula
