End of life Doulagiver

I’ve written quite a bit recently about the end of life Doulagiver training. I received this email from Ann in Bremerton, WA.

“Hi Roger – I’ve been reading your posts for several years. I was intrigued with the Doulagivers End-of-Life class that you held but I was out of town and could not attend.

I’m still interested, so please tell me more. What is and end of life Doulagiver? How can I take this training, and will it be offered again and if so when?

I am a hospice volunteer and I’m wondering if this would be a good addition for me.

Thank you.


Hi Ann – this is such an exciting question for me! Thank you for asking.

According to Suzanne O’Brien at Doulagivers, a “Doula” is a Greek word that means non-medical person that gives physical, emotional and spiritual support to someone else.

An End-of-life Doula is a non-medical professional that provides holistic support for the dying and their loved ones before, during, and after death.  Trained in the various end of life stages a Doula is able to assist the family with understanding the natural processes while providing comfort and support.

An End of Life Doula can also be known as a Death Doula, Death Midwife, or End of Life Guide.

An End of Life Doula-

  • Provides support and care for those in the last phases of life-limiting illness.
  • Recognizes dying as part of the normal process of living.
  • Focuses on quality of life for individuals and their family caregivers.

End of Life Doulas are “Filling the Gap” in the end of life care team.

My colleague Kelley T. Woods and I just hosted Suzanne O’Brien here in Seattle for a Doulagivers End-of-Live Certification training. This course was recorded and will soon be available for purchase.

Suzanne, Kelley and I are all available and happy to talk with you to answer additional questions that you may have on how you can integrate this training with your hospice work.
