Any adult needs to understand who would be their SDM if they are not able to provide their own consents. The Village Death Doula will be pleased to assist individuals in the Advance Care Plan.

Pregnancy & Infant Loss

Grieving and coping with pregnancy loss and infant loss starts with acknowledging a broken heart(s), whether it be miscarriage, abortion, stillbirth, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), or the death of a newborn baby. The Village Death Doula will help with you and your family's comfort and emotional support needs. This grief will be felt physically as well as emotionally.


Rituals & Ceremonies

This is one of our most popular services available. A ritual is an intentional action to create meaningful acknowledgment, creating connection. Rituals can mark the past as well as the future. Ceremonies are a collection of rituals to express feelings and to celebrate people and life. The Village Death Doula is pleased to assist in the creation of your unique and personal rituals and ceremonies.


Somatic Movement Therapy

Somatic practices are slow, mindful movements mainly done lying down comfortably on the floor. The primary focus is on finding ease and quality movement and the form of the movement is secondary. This work teaches us to recognize and release holding patterns and chronic pain resulting from injury, stress, repetitive strain, and habituated posture. Some of the benefits of somatic movement include relieving physical distress, improving a person's sense of resiliency, improving emotional regulation, and reducing anxiety. Highly recommended!



To vigil is to quiety wait with or near the dying person and the period is typically the last two or three days of life. The Village Death Doula will offer vigil services including creating the environment and coaching attendees of the vigil. The setting is a peaceful one. Let us know how we can assist you today.
