End of Life Doula
Doulagivers will offer two End of Life Doula Trainings in April. Both trainings will be held at the Seattle Central College and online worldwide, April 20, 21 & 22, 2018.
The End of Life Doula Certification Training is for those who wish to be Certified End of Life Doulas. Just like the birthing doula movement that is a fully recognized profession, now we have Death Doulas also known as End of Life Doulas.
Care for the dying
Hospice and Oncology nurse Suzanne B. O’Brien creates End of Life Doula Program to help train both families and professionals on how to care for the dying.
9 out of 10 people say they want to be cared for at home if terminally ill. Presently, half are dying in institutions. Death is the second leading fear in the united States.
At this time, we have 78 million baby boomers over the age of 65 in the U.S. 20% of them do not have their own children. “We are in the midst of an elder care crisis,” said O’Brien.
Most people do not know the first thing about caring for someone who is at the end of life. It is unfair to expect them to take care of a dying loved one at home without the basic knowledge and surrounded by fear.
People are forced to be in this situation every day, many times leaving families with much sorrow, guilt and regret.
“End of life and the grieving process are not going well in our society at this time. We have to do better in supporting patients and families through this critical period.” ~Suzanne B. O’Brien RN

Your Hypnosis Health Info Hypnotic Suggestion for today:
I care for myself and others with patience, love and kindness.
“The way that healthcare is going, we need to be able to train non-medical professionals to fill in the gap of care that is unfortunately existing in every mainstream medical service. End of life requires time, but for nurses and doctors today, time is a very limited thing,” said O’Brien.
The End of Life Doula Certification Training covers all 3 phases of end of life care including the top ten end of life disease processes, medications, dealing with acceptance, forgiveness, unresolved issues, advance care planning, home wakes, green burials, as well as grief and bereavement techniques and support.
This is a subject that will touch each one of us at some point in our journey. Doulagivers is the new specialized area of non-medical health care.
This training is for those who have a calling and desire to support and guide both patients and families through any aspect of the end of life process.
Following in the footsteps of the birthing doula movement that has been a successful specialized non-medical field in the area of childbirth for decades, now is the time for us to offer the same care and support for those at end of life.
Death Doulas were included in Time Magazine’s list of New Cutting-Edge Jobs for 2017.
All of Suzanne O’Brien’s proceeds will go to benefit The International Doulagivers Foundation. Supporting people worldwide with training, supplies, and support. For more information on The International Doulagivers Foundation please visit www.INDGF.org
Suzanne B. O’Brien RN, founder of Doulagivers has been awarded Worldwide Leader in Healthcare by the International Nurses Association.
