"It should be a sacred day for you when one of your people dies – a sacred day, when a soul is released and returns to its home."
(Black Elk)

In many cultures, faiths and religions, dying is considered a spiritual journey, that death is not the end but is a transition to another life.  Family and their communities will hold vigil for the dying person, with love, prayers and blessings being given. 

Even where there are no spiritual beliefs, we all understand that when a person is dying, if they receive love and compassion, and we just sit and hold their hand, it is very comforting. 

Please call or email me, if you have a friend or family member who needs my support.

I will work holistically to compliment the medical care provided at all levels and stages of transition.

As a companion for the dying (also known as a Soul Midwife or Death Doula), I am trained to recognize the physical, emotional and spiritual changes of a dying person, accompany and assist them on their individual journey.  I will respect, listen to and recognise the individual needs of the dying person and ensure they feel loved and supported. I can use sound, colour, aromas and gentle touch techniques to help alleviate anxiety and pain. I will create and hold a sacred, tranquil and healing space, keeping a loving vigil within a family home, hospice or care environment.

 

Felicity Warner (Founder of Soul Midwives) says "The Soul Midwife’s most important role is to provide comfort, continuous support and reassurance in helping a dying person to experience the death he or she wants".
