What is Soul Midwifery?

A Soul Midwife is a loving companion who can guide and support those going through the dying process. I aim to assist the dying to have a dignified and peaceful death, switching the focus from cure to loving care.

If I am privileged enough to be able to sit at your bedside, at the end, I will endeavour to ease your passage by:

  • Recognising your needs and supporting you in your choices
  • Giving healing touch, using sound, colour and scented therapy
  • Keeping a loving vigil
  • Holding sacred and healing space
  • Work with both your spirit and your soul at all levels of your transition
  • Ensure that you feel loved and supported until your very last breath
  • Assist you in getting your affairs in order
  • Asking hard questions and sharing pertinent information
  • Offer all forms of support; physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual
  • Being the compassionate companion, the intimate stranger who can provide love, acceptance and non-judgement
  • Provide holistic care and advocacy as you create your end-of-life plans
  • Offer gentle touch, relaxation, and end-of-life vigiling
  • Bringing death back home
