An End-of-Life Doula, as defined by The Australian Doula College is “a non-
medical role” that provides support, options and education assisting the dying
and those around them have their end of life unfold in alignment with their
wishes, to preserve the quality of life, well being and self-worth up to and
beyond the end of life as we know it.
They are the “informed companion” bringing comfort, support, compassion, and
assist a person and their family in feeling safe and supported during this
important transition “.
