Soul midwives, death doulas and end of life companions are reviving a valuable and ancient craft. Like the wise men and women in tribal villages and communities of old, they accompany the dying on their final journey, helping people meet and accept death.
Dying can be a very scary prospect. The end. The unknown. Losing connection with those we love and life as we know it. Towards the end, people can feel waves of anxiety and euphoria in turn, whether in principle they are resigned to death, accepting of it or maybe even welcome it.
