Curious about all things
End of Life


We are grateful to share our media pieces with you because for us this represents the role of end of life doulas, being more widely known in the world. And although our work is dedicated to the end of life space, our media conversations are simply honest and often funny, mostly light and always extremely informative.

Please get comfy and listen and watch a few, and we’d love if you also share some with the people in your world, to grow awareness of this important EOL role even more. Thank you!
