What does a Death Midwife do?

A DEATH MIDWIFE guides and supports individuals and their families 

through all three stages of the dying process:

BEFORE – upon notice of terminal diagnosis or life-limiting illness

DURING – active dying and death, and

AFTER – unexpected death, final rites, care of the body, burial or cremation, funeral or memorial and bereavement. 

A DEATH MIDWIFE provides information, guidance and support to both the death journeyer 

and their families from terminal diagnosis through final disposition.

DEATH MIDWIFERY combines the roles of death doula, spiritual counselor, 

end-of-life caregiver, home funeral guide and funeral director. 

What is a Home Funeral?

HOME FUNERALS are when a loved one is cared for at home after death, by family, 

giving them time to gather and participate in:

- planning and carrying out after-death rituals or ceremonies

- preparing the body for burial or cremation by bathing, dressing and laying out for visitation

- keeping the body cool with noninvasive techniques, such as ice.

 HOME FUNERALS invite family, friends, and community into an authentic 

and healing after-death care experience 

in a safe and familiar place, with care performed by loving hands.

What makes it a Green Burial, you wonder?

GREEN BURIAL is the caring for the dead with minimal environmental impact 

that aids in the conservation of natural resources, reduction of carbon emissions, protection of worker health, 

and the restoration and/or preservation of habitat. 

GREEN BURIAL necessitates the use of non-toxic and biodegradable materials, 

such as caskets, shrouds, and urns. 

All CASKETS, SHROUDS and URNS must be constructed from plant-derived, 

recycled plant-derived, natural, animal, or unfired earthen materials, 

including shell, liner, and adornments. 

Fasteners and handles (other than those made from brass or chrome) 

are excluded from this requirement. 


"Death is the wish of some, the relief of many,

and the end of all..."
