You may have heard of a birth doula, but what about an end of life doula, also commonly called a death doula? While a birth doula guides women through pregnancy and childbirth, a death doula provides care at the other end of life. Also known as an end-of-life doula, death midwife, transition guide, soul midwife, or death coach, their goals are all the same: to provide emotional and spiritual support at an intensely personal and critical time. While this practice is not a new concept, the death doula movement is gaining popularity as more people become aware of the possibilities surrounding end-of-life support.
Under the guidance of a doula, dying patients and their families find comfort, peace, and reassurance during this final stage in life. What is a death doula? Just like a birth doula offers support during the birthing process, a death doula helps someone deal with their impending death and any preparations they need to make. In many cases, an end-of-life doula picks up where hospice services end — due to the constraints of insurance, most medical care professionals are restricted in what services they can perform, and how much time they spend with each patient. A doula bridges the gap between medical staff and family caregivers by providing time, support, and help with non-medical tasks. Their ultimate goal is to assist patients and their families in creating a personal, peaceful, and special end-of-life transition.
