About Death Doulas and Midwives

Much like doulas help pregnant mothers, death doulas or death midwives offer comfort and support in the final stage of a person's life. So many of the dying are forced to face their last moments alone, and death doulas hope to remedy this by being there to listen to, accompany, and console the dying who may have no one else to confide in.

Many professional death doulas are volunteers who offer their services for free. Others have a fee or accept donations. Finding a death doula or midwife has never been easier. Simply enter your City, State or Zip Code in the Funerals360 Search Box to find the best death doula for you or your loved one.
