Testimonials

"By the end of the in-person 2-Day training, I felt fully supported and educated as to the resources that any Death Doula, medical professional, or supporting friend or a family member has available to enrich and ease the transition of self, family, or friends into Death.

 

Not only did I feel more educated as a Medical professional, but also fully supported in a growing community of highly qualified Death Doulas."

 Dr. Melanie Trowbridge, ND

About Gentle Passage Doula Collective

Gentle Passage is a collective of healthcare professionals dedicated to changing the way our society regards death and dying. Collectively we’ve spent over 50 years reducing the fear and unnecessary suffering around the natural process of dying. 

According to the United States Census Bureau, in 2020, there were approximately 13.7 million people aged 80 years and older in the United States. That number will only grow as the future generations age.

Our goal? Professional end-of-life doulas in every senior care community and home care agency. We aim for a future where everyone has access to the resources that support for a “good death.”

Death Doula Resources

Outside of our training, we serve our community by providing tools, information, and recommended resources for individuals seeking to learn more about Death Doula training and support those nearing the end of life. We’ve also listed our favorite doula-specific book recommendations for providing emotional, spiritual, and practical support to the dying and their loved ones.
