Death Midwifery Services

To live in this world
you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal;
to hold it
against your bones knowing your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.

Acknowledging the reality of our mortality requires tenderness, courage, and love.

Providing care during precious moments requires many hands.

Letting go happens in its own time, in its own way.

A Note about Death Midwifery Services:

I offer death midwifery services to individuals and families that want to reclaim the wisdom of caring for our living and dying bodies. I believe that it is radical to engage in talking about death, planning for death, and being present when death arrives. As a death midwife I support and guide individuals and families during one of life’s most poignant natural processes. I collaborate with medical and caregiving providers to advocate for ethical and compassionate end of life and palliative care. My role is that of a witness and guide, rather than clinician. I integrate many types of practical knowing and integrative modalities that I have gathered throughout my training and lived experience. Ultimately, I create space with you as you navigate the great mystery of death.
