Our Core Values and Beliefs

  • Death is understood to be a normal life event, not just an abrupt ending.
  • The Doula Model of Care offers a holistic model of support perfectly suited to the end of life.
  • Holistic care is defined as addressing the needs of the whole person, including physical, emotional, psychological, social, cultural and spiritual aspects.
  • The dying person and their family are seen as a unit.
  • Each family served is unique and care should be adapted accordingly.
  • People will benefit from information and resources that encourage consideration of available choices and pro-active planning based on their values and preferences.
  • Doulas provide non-judgmental, confidential and respectful support adapted to the needs of each family served.
