“Death midwives help the living and the dying.” This was the headline for an article that ran earlier this fall in the Austin American-Statesman about several individuals who help people who are dying and their families. As the article points out, death midwives, also called death doulas, sit with those who are dying, and help families through the process in a variety of ways.
Perhaps you or those you know might be helped by an end-of-life doula in your area. Check out the Statesman article, and ask around for doula resources near you. Melody
