This was my first experience working with a death doula on end-of-life. The subject of death, for me, has historically signaled fear, anxiety and dread. Participating in this program was a big step toward alleviating some of those feelings as I learned how to create a plan that ensures that the way I leave this world is as mindful as how I live in it. Not only did Billie Jo meet each of us in the group where we were at in the process, she provided a wealth of resources (informational / practical / emotional / educational) that were both enlightening and supportive as we moved through each step. I learned a great deal and am very glad to have participated.
