A story about the developing work of death doulas can be found on Page 90 in the October issue of The Australian Women’s Weekly, available now.
The introduction: “There is a quiet, serene revolution going on in the way we farewell our loved ones. Caroline Baum meets the women, known as death doulas, who prepare the way for the final journey with empathy and love.”
And a quote from Victoria Spence, who is interviewed: “No matter how violent or upsetting the circumstances, my belief is always that being informed and involved is healing, whereas denial is not.”
It’s a fascinating read.
At Good Grief we met up with a death doula at The Last Hurrah funeral directors and chatted with them about their belief diverse service.
