I Hold Sacred Space 

Space to breathe in that big beautiful first breath of life. 

Space to slowly release that last sacred breath of life. 

And space for the moments when the first and last breaths of life are in the same moment. The same hour. The same day. The same week.  The same month. The same year.  The same decade.

Death Midwifery Package: 

Initial Gathering (90 minutes):

We will meet in your home and check in with where everyone in the immediate family unit is at emotionally  and practically with processing the diagnosis.  Checking in with adults and children may be done together or separately depending on the family's needs.   During check in we can acknowledge and honor any fears or other strong emotions that may be present and ready to be witnessed.  We can also plan for what services will be most helpful for the family moving forward.  

 

4 Follow up Gatherings (90 minutes):

We can use each gathering to best meet the needs of your family.  Gatherings may include life review which is an opportunity for the person who is dying to review their life with gratitude and move through any resistance or regret that may be lingering.  Vigil and ceremony planning and preparation allows the family to explore what feels meaningful and comforting to the person who is dying during the last moments of life and beyond.  By discussing preferences for the last moments of life and beyond, some of the scary and unknown worries can transform into comforting and empowered plans.  

Grief Follow Up (90 minutes):

After your loved one has passed I'm here to hold space and witness whatever else needs to be shared.  We will also discuss other resources available to support your grieving family moving forward.
