Death Doula Certification

What is an End of Life Doula?

We are navigators – we help folks through their final stage of life, and we help their families and friends, too. We complement the wonderful work of hospice as we serve as companions, create peaceful environments, help with appointments and errands, share knowledge, facilitate family meetings, provide emotional, physical and spiritual support – and more!

We’re delighted to partner with International Doula Life Movement in bringing you this special End of Life Doula Certification program.

Fee: $750, includes a field trip to Countryside Memorial Park (which specializes in natural burials) and a special graduation ceremony at the end!
