What is a Death Doula?

(Job Description)

Looking for a Death Doula, but need more information, like a job description to better understand how the process works?

When I get asked about my job, I explain that as a Death Doula, I assist in the dying process. Much like a Midwife or Birthing Doula when a soul enters, as a Death Doula I assist when the soul exits.

End of life care is an important moment to personalize.  Recognizing the natural part of life into a spiritual and transformative soul journey experience that a Death Doula removes the trauma of passing on by offering comfort and support. It’s the final journey of life.
