A Different Kind of Doula
We are End of life doula trainers, mentors, and practitioners companioning folks through life and end-of-life.

End of Life doulas bring compassion, care, and expertise in all aspects of end-of-life care. Doulas are non-medical caregivers who work in collaboration with medical providers and hospices. Doulas are trained in caring for the terminally ill person's physical, emotional, and spiritual needs while also caring for those that matter most to the person: family, friends, and healthcare providers. They work with people and their families as death approaches (Pre), during the dying process (Active), and after the death to provide bereavement support Post)

Gentle Passage Doula Collective is committed to training doulas with a solid foundation in end-of-life care.  We work to make the dying experience as peaceful and beautiful as possible through education, empowerment, and loving support. We offer comprehensive support and training to provide the dying and their loved ones with the tools and resources they need to give a gentle passage from this life.

 

Living with NO REGRETS!
Let's face it...None of us are getting out of this life alive!
How about doing it with intent/thoughtfulness/purpose?
