From deathdoulas.com: An End-of-Life Doula “is a non-medical person trained to care for someone holistically (physically, emotionally, and spiritually) at the end of life.” The foundation of our care is the belief that death is “a natural, accepted, and honored part of life.” (Cassandra Yonder, Beyond Yonder Death Midwifery). On Bright Wings supports people before, during, and after the end of life process. Our services are based on the needs of the individual and the family. We advocate for, and serve as a liaison to the many other spheres of care and professional services that might be involved in someone’s end of life experience.
"The crucible of making human beings is death. Every culture worth a damn knows that. It's not success, it's not growth, it's not happiness. It's death. That's the cradle of your love of life; the fact that it ends."
--Stephen Jenkinson (Author of Die Wise)
