This Masterclass is for you if you want to build confidence within yourself as you serve others.
“Doula Considerations: from First Visit Through Death” will help you get grounded from your first visit through after death. We will go over everything from your own grounding, establishing connection from first visit on, processes, payment, closure; all of it.
You will know the flow by the end of the workshop and you will know what you will need to do for yourself, where you are great, and where you need some work.
There are some definite vigil considerations that are helpful to know as someone is approaching their death. Not many of us have been fortunate enough to learn these things with our own families and neighbors like those before us did in the ‘old days.’
Death is not a medical event—it is a part of the normal life cycle. As a person dies, the managing of symptoms can become a medical event, but dying itself is not. Hospice are the experts at managing symptoms and keeping the experience of death smooth, peaceful, and the most positive experience possible (for all)—so that everyone can relax, love each other, and be with each other in a memorable way that brings joy and smiles upon remembrance.
This class will hone-in further to a doula's role here and a broader discussion on what should be happening on the first visit through death. If you are going to be accompanying others through dying, either as a volunteer or paid practitioner, the first time you will often meet the family is during vigil time.
Join us for the most important things to consider during your first visit and until the death of the person.
We each have a part to play in creating this environment. That’s why the concept of “End-of-Life Literacy” is so important. Knowing about the end of life and how you'd like this time period to go can make the world of difference.
