Introductory End of Life Doula Training

Free Training #1: Introductory End-of-Life Doula Training

Introductory End-of-Life Doula Training

Nine out of ten people poled say they want to be kept home if they have a terminal diagnosis.  End-of-Life is inevitable and we need to do much more to support both patients and families; ensuring the experience is as positive as possible. Doulagivers is here to support families and communities with free education so that they may support those they love, and care for them at home, at the end of life.  This free 60-minute training is an introductory End of Life Doula Training. It is meant for family caregivers, community volunteers, and those who are interested in becoming a certified end of Life Doula Practitioner.

The Doulagivers Free  End-of-Life Doula Training allows families to regain and learn the skills of how to care for a dying loved one. This was something that was handed down generation-to-generation 100 years ago. We are bringing this skill back and it is changing the world.  The Doulagivers End of Life Doula Model of Care has been used in The United States, Canada, Thailand, Australia, Belize, Curacao, and the Philippines. It is our great privilege to help support communities to develop their own Doulagivers resource network so that they may care for their own communities. If you are in need of free education and supplies- please contact Doulagivers at Doulagivers@gmail.com. Please share this free training with your friends and family. “Together we can make death be the natural, positive experience it was meant to be.” Suzanne B. O’Brien RN

Free Training #2: Introductory Elder Care Doula Training

Introductory Eldercare Doula Training

Enjoy this free Introduction to The Doulagivers Elder Care Doula Training.
Aging is a difficult, but integral part of our life. Having people to count on and care for your loved ones brings not only great quality of life to the patient, but also incredible peace of mind to those who love them.

Elder Care Doulas are specifically trained to provide holistic (physical, emotional, and spiritual) care for the elderly. An Elder Care Doula can care for your aging seniors by simply being a companion through the aging process, as well as by providing ongoing support to both the patient and their families at the time throughout the end-of-life process.

Due to the reality of the modern family structure and our increasingly challenged medical system, we need additional options to support and care for the precious, aging population. It is time to give the elderly the reverence and care they deserve. If you are a Doulagviers certified End of Life Doula with a passion for the elderly, register for our Elder Care Doula Training Program today.

Introductory Life Class

Enjoy this free introduction to the Doulagivers Life Class.
Everything is energy. By using the combination of learning how the human body consists of four bodies of energy (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) you will learn how to understand each body of energy, how they work and the impact each has on your overall well-being. When the bodies of energy are out of balance, we can feel tired, unhappy and can even become ill. I will teach you how to nourish each body of energy for optimal health, balance and fulfillment. You will be taught the understanding of how everything is energy and how you can do things to help clear blockages and ultimately lighten your energy up! Health, happiness and wellness is the combination of understanding and balancing each of the bodies of energy that make up the human body and what you need to do to nourish each of them equally.
