Bringing Life to Death

Providing You with Peace of Mind

 

As certified End of Life Doulas we work with people to help find meaning and purpose in their life, to understand the impact they have made, and the legacy they are leaving.  We help plan and educate for how the final days will unfold while supporting those loved ones left behind.  Doulas also guide family and friends through these last days, and help ease the suffering of grief.

 

We find that the process of discussing our mortality can create peace-of-mind, paving the way for more joyful living, secure in the knowledge that you’ve taken the steps to ensure your wishes.

Regardless of whether you chose to spend your final days at home, a hospital, or nursing facility, we help provide physical, emotional, spiritual and informational care & support.

Our Mission

To support and serve as guides to individuals and their families as they work through and accept the process of dying;  to help them manage their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

To provide the individual a sounding board to help establish and fulfill their ideas of a peaceful passing.

To assist the family as they navigate this journey, affirming to them that they are not alone, helpless or lost.

 

 

 

"We believe death, as in birth, can be a powerful, awe-inspiring moment if one allows it."

Doulas on Camera

 

 

"The Death Discussion" is a short documentary focusing on the concept of death and the recent popularity of 'death cafés'.  Produced by Christian Robinson, a VCU student reporter.

Facing our own death is filled with a mired of emotions. In our modern culture, unfortunately families often buffer those negative feelings, yet it’s through exploring them that actual growth and truth exists.  As end of life doulas we welcome that growth and exploration.  Here is Shelby's response to how we buffer pain as a society.
