What an important time in the history for the end of life doula movement!
Our national trade organization, The Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) is creating an End of Life Doula Council to educate both consumers and hospices and palliative care clinics about end of life doulas, how everyone can use doulas and how doulas can serve the hospice and palliative care industry.
What do you call yourself? At Quality of Life Care, we have adopted the suggestion of the National Home Funeral Alliance regarding how we refer to this role of the Independent EOL Practitioner. Please review here.
As it may warm my heart to call myself an End of Life Doula or Death Midwife, the general public would not necessarily know to look for me with that title.
