Death Midwives are the water that flows through the rocks between the medical community and the funeral industry.
A Death Midwife is a non-medical holistic companion who guides and supports a dying person. We work as non-denominational practitioners honoring the dying person's beliefs about life, death and the afterlife. We help to create a sacred and healing space, to serve, to listen, to keep a loving vigil and support families and their loved ones.
