The Sacred Servant doula accompanies, guides, empowers, comforts, and supports those with advanced illness or approaching end of life, as well as their family and caregivers.*
The Sacred Servant also provides end of life doula consulting, training and mentoring to hospice staff, trainers, and volunteers. The core of our services stems from providing educational training through individual consultations, group workshops, and mentoring other end of life doulas.
The word "doula" comes from the Greek language referring to an important female household servant who supports during the birthing process. End of Life Doulas have been supporting the dying process since ancient times.

FAMILY, FRIENDS AND CO-WORKERS OF SOMEONE ILL: If you don't know what to say or you don't how you can help, I do. You can request a private consultation regarding how you can best support your loved one/friend/co-worker. Also, you can provide the person or family with a gift of The Sacred Servant services. If you purchase a gift certificate from The Sacred Servant, you can designate it for a person or family's benefit and they will be notified of your compassionate support. Those gifting services to a person or family who wish to remain anonymous, please specify at time of purchase.
