At the Bedside; an introduction to becoming an end-of-life doula
What is an end-of-life doula? What can the end-of-life doula do? How can you become 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 can bring to someone who is dying, and someone who is preparing to say goodbye. This class will offer you the information you will need to make the decision to do this work with confidence.
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 doula training programs that I recommend.
I always have a guest speaker that will also add to what you can take away from this class.
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!
