What can death doula/death midwife do for you?
Death Doulas are end of life advocates who holistically support the dying  and their loved ones emotionally, physically, and spiritually.  Most death doulas provide a variety of services including the creation of death plans, streamlining resources, anticipatory grief support, home organization, compassionate companionship, vigiling, holistic therapies, healing rituals, legacy and memory projects, living wakes, planning of funeral and memorial services, assistance with final wishes, and more. Death doulas work beautifully in tandem with hospice and palliative care medical professionals.  A death doula can compassionately ease the process of dying and honor your or your loved one's final wishes.

What can a bereavement doula do for you?
The term bereavement doula is often commonly associated with pregnancy loss but the term can be applied to all losses. The time after a loved one passes can be a very vulnerable and emotional time. A bereavement doula can help ease your grief process through compassionate caregiving. Services can include grief support, healing rituals, and home organization, as well as completion of legal, financial, and legacy projects.
