Death Doula

In recent months I’ve been posting quite a bit about End-of-Life care and so it’s only natural that many of you have been asking me, “What is a death doula?”

With that question in mind, I am happy to share with you  an Ask a Death Doula podcast with Suzanne B. O’Brien RN that answers this question.

End-of-Life is inevitable and we need to do much more to support both patients and families; ensuring the experience is as positive as possible. Nine out of ten people poled say they want to be kept home if they have a terminal diagnosis.

Many end of life care experts agree that over the course of the next decade, there will be a great rise in demand for alternative care services in order to accommodate the aging Baby Boomer generation and keep people at home during end of life.

Death Doulas care for the whole person

What is a Death Doula? 5 Questions Answered

Suzanne O’Brien, R.N., December 18, 2017: A Death Doula is a non-medical person trained to care for someone holistically (physically, emotionally and spiritually) at the end of life. Death Doulas are also known around the world as: end of life coaches, soul midwives, transition guides. death coaches, doula to the dying, end of life doulas, death midwives, and end of life guides.

Death Doulas are people who support people in the end of life process, much like a midwife or doula with the birthing process. It is “a new non-medical profession” that recognizes death as a natural, accepted, and honored part of life. One might say that death midwifery is to hospice palliative care as birth midwifery is to obstetrics.
