The role of the death doula: 'We're companions to the dying and their families'
"Death doulas are slowly shifting the way that society perceives mortality".
People often tell me they highly "dislike" (this is a nice word for what they say) the term Death Doula. This isn't surprising because we are a death phobic society, so any mention death is seen as morbid and distasteful. However, death is a part of life....a very natural part of life. Why do we use language, such as lost or passed? Why are we opposed to death and dying? The more we normalize End of Life matters (death, dying, after death and grief) the better we can get in touch with our relationships with death.
Reach out to begin to normalize a very natural part of life.
