Are you wondering what a doula is and what services they provide?


The word doula is derived from the Greek and has come to mean "a person that serves."  Today, it's associated with the services a Birth Doula or Death Doula provides.  However, there are numerous other life events that a doula will support someone like you or your family through.


A Certified Doula at Courageous Goodbyes® is "a non-medical professional who serves and journeys alongside others."   Our holistic and nurturing doula approach focuses on the unique needs of individuals and families during times of change or crisis. We companion, advocate, liaise, educate and support them through challenges and fears related to the senior years, loss of independence, health issues, terminal illness, the end of life transition, death and grief,  We assist them in developing plans that incorporate their values, needs, goals and abilities, to empower them to live and enjoy days filled with life.


A Certified End of Life Doula at Courageous Goodbyes® is honored to companion the dying and their loved ones.  In this specialized non-medical professional role, we offer an additional level of reassurance and sense of security to the dying person and their family because we are their consistent nurturing presence invited to journey alongside them.  Our holistic doula approach quickly develops a relationship of mutual respect and trust that empowers families to create a sacred space to share final memories, embrace the bittersweet gifts of the journey and prepare for their courageous goodbyes.
