"Just as birth doulas help expectant parents bring new life into the world, end-of-life doulas help the dying cope with their next journey. They help the dying and their survivors face death with empowerment and affirmation instead of fear and anxiety".
In the 1970's people were just beginning to hear about "birth doulas". At the time, people were wary and confused as to what a birth doula was. As the years have passed, birth doulas are more common place, especially for the pregnant women that want to be comforted in the body, mind and soul aspects when giving birth.
Death Doulas, or End of Life Doula's, are somewhat new, however this kind of service is gaining traction for those individuals and families that want to experience the living, dying and death in a deeper and more profound way.
