At the Bedside; an introduction to becoming an end-of-life doula
What is an end-of-life doula?
Please join me for a three-hour workshop where I will share about the heart and philosophy of the doula, as well as the comfort they bring to someone who is dying, and someone who is preparing to say goodbye.
I will hand over my tools to help you choreograph the journey from diagnosis to death for someone who is dying.
I will always have at least one guest speaker sharing their experience and offerings.
In this class I will talk about the following:
What is a doula?
How to become a doula
How to create a business as a doula
Getting the conversation started with patient and family
Signs and symptoms of death approaching
Non-clinical ways to provide support, relief and comfort
Honoring their wishes
I will provide a list of certificated programs, as well as other doula training programs that I recommend.
My book "At the Bedside" is not required for this course but would be an excellent book for you to have.
This class will not certify you to become an end-of-life doula, however I do provide you with a certificate for three hours of doula training, while also offering you doula-inspired tools to provide compassionate end-of-life care.
Note: This class pairs nicely with my Best Three Months course.

The Scholarship Fund
I offer scholarship spots for all of my classes so that anyone can take them, and finances do not get in their way. I have been asked how someone can donate a scholarship spot, so I have created a donation page for that purpose.
All donations will go directly to allowing someone else to take a class.
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
