Transition, Loss, End-of-Life Doula Services
What is a Doula? How Can a Doula Help Me?
Some folks might see the word "doula" and think about a midwife or someone who assists in the childbirth process. This is generally correct. A doula's role in the birthing experience begins in the preparation for the birth, continues through the birthing event, and wraps up post-partum.
An End-of-Life Doula assists in the dying process. EoL Doulas are not new roles in modern society. They have existed for centuries, throughout many cultures across the Earth. The role of this caregiver is to prepare the community for the physical passing of a person, hold vigil during the active dying phase, and help provide closure to those surviving with grief and reprocessing tools. EoL Doulas can provide many resources and helpful information to communities anticipating a loss. This helps demystify the very natural process of death and gives the dying person autonomy over their final moments. In turn, this helps the community process the loss in a meaningful and intimate way. We believe this is good medicine for all involved.
When we refer to Loss Doula work, we mean to treat any major life loss in a similar fashion. Stann works with folks who are going through loss in their lives, whether that is predicated on an impending death of a physical person or not. We consider the process a universal "Letting Go" and work with clients to develop custom programs. This could be an unanticipated loss or one that can be anticipated. This could be a voluntary or involuntary loss. Examples include: planning to quit a bad habit, job, or relationship. Others can be a lay-off or firing, a sudden loss of a pet. We recognize that Loss is specific and intimate to anyone experiencing it. Our goal is to help clients move through it with kindness towards themselves above all.
Transition Doula Services are tailored specifically for folks in the LGBTQIA2S+ community. Stann will help clients at any stage of their journey learn to make mindful choices, advocate for the care they need, and help navigate parameters for healthy boundaries and self-talk.
Whatever life is throwing you these days, remember that Prism Wellness Works treats the full spectrum of humans and all their emotions! Stann's Doula services are specific to your needs, timeline and resources.
