End-of-life doulas support people who are dying as well as the people who are supporting and caring for loved ones who are dying. They are a wonderful addition to hospice and can help bring deeper meaning and sacredness to death.
Doulas offer information about the dying process and can help create legacy projects, vigil plans, ceremonies, and rituals around dying, death, and grief. Doulas do not offer medical care.
There is no federal or state regulatory body that certifies death doulas or death midwives. You will want to interview your doula to make sure they are trained and/or certified. The certification process is fairly new, and different doula training organizations have different requirements for certification.
