A New Form Of Midwife For The End Of Life: Death Doula
In the olden days, death was accepted as a natural part of life, and the old and the sick died surrounded by loved ones and as part of the community. But now, death is a topic to be avoided and the dying shut away in hospitals or nursing homes. Happily, Mother Nature Network reports the tide is turning once again. "Death doulas" are beginning to emerge in hospices and homes across the country.
