End of Life Doula Resources

Updated: Apr 16

Death, as a whole, in our society isn't talked about and definitely isn't celebrated as an exciting next step (outside of a few.) And yes, saying goodbye to a loved one can be difficult, whether you are the one leaving, or are the one being left behind. It is my sincere hope that I can work to shift that for those who choose to have the open conversations necessary for change.


I encourage you to reach out to me for more information - so much can be done in the months prior to transition that will make the "saying goodbye" more of an "I'll see you soon" and less of a feeling of unbearable sadness.


Below are some links that I've gathered that may be of interest:

  • KC End of Life // The choice to hire a death doula is personal and important. If I am not the one for you, kindly visit KC End of Life to see if another person is a better fit. KC End of Life is a collective of doulas, and each of us brings our own unique personality and skills.

  • Death Cafe // Death Cafes are events where individuals gather to eat cake and discuss death. There's no agenda, and no promotion of business allowed - each death cafe is different, and discussion topics are organically decided by the group of people in attendance. It's always a good time. Visit the link here to find one near you.

  • Loose Ends // When a loved one passes, sometimes they leave a project half-finished. Loose Ends specializes in completing the fiber arts projects on behalf of those who are no longer with us.

  • Aquamation // An Eco-Friendly Alternative To Flame Cremation And Burial
