What’s a Death Doula – Baker uses a sliding scale and charges $30 to $100 per hour, depending on the service. She also offers support to family members of the dying, such as explaining the signs of death, helping prepare them emotionally and discussing burial options.
The doula is a professional trained in childbirth who provides emotional, physical, and educational support to a mother who is expecting, is experiencing labor, or has recently given birth. Their purpose is to help women have a safe, memorable, and empowering birthing experience.
A bereavement doula or a “loss doula” is a doula who walks with, supports, and helps families who are experiencing the loss of their baby, whether that loss is through miscarriage, stillbirth, or a diagnosis that means the baby will not live long after being delivered.
