What you'll learn in this lecture class:

This workshop unpacks the role of the death midwife from the final breath, through the 3-day home vigil and funeral, until final disposition. It is open to professional and non-professional end-of-life caregivers and anyone wishing to care for their loved-one naturally, at home, according to personal, religious and cultural traditions.

Topics explored include:

  • after-death rites and rituals
  • legalities and logistics of a 1 to 3-day home vigil
  • the death midwife kit
  • care of the body (bathing, dressing, anointing); shrouding
  • decorating the cremation casket
  • laying the body in-honor
  • dry-ice preservation
  • completing the death-care directive
  • unexpected death and holding space in the ER from life support to death support
  • stillbirth/infant death and bringing baby home
  • and self-care for caregivers/preventing burnout
  • We will use films, meditations, written exercises and demonstrations to support the information being shared.
