It is a human one.
We have accompanied each other through the bookends of life — birth and death — since the beginning of time. In many cultures specific individuals held the role of guide through these ificant life events.
They eased physical and spiritual pain, shepherded life across the threshold, celebrated and blessed those involved, and reaffirmed the communal understanding of these life cycle experiences. In our modern western way of life, with the disbursement of families, multiple generations no longer living together, the over dependence on technology, and the bias embedded in our health care system people have lost touch with the naturalness of dying and how best to support people going through it. As a result, too many people die in fear and unnecessary suffering.
Whether you received a life-limiting diagnosis, you care for someone near the end of life, you feel a calling to serve the dying, or you just want to know more about best practices in end-of-life care, Inelda welcomes you. Together we will change the face of dying as we serve people in a way that can achieve more profound meaning and provide greater comfort for all involved.
Having a doula to accompany and guide us made such a difference. I cannot imagine how I would have managed without a doula. Envision a world where people die in a way that values their culture and fulfills their wishes.
Envision a world where a dying person's race, sexual orientation and gender are honored. Envision a world where life stories lead to precious gifts of meaning for the dying.
Envision a world where doulas are available to everyone, bringing compassion and comfort. Together we can make this vision a reality.
