Our Code of Ethics

Since there is no recognized End of Life Doula certification or license we have worked diligently to create a training that will apply to any professional. This training dives much deeper into the comprehensive aspect of what really an End of Life Doula does, as well as, how important this position is with the wave of new end of life care options. We know there are many options for training programs out there and urge any professional interested in taking this career path, to ask questions! We ask our candidates to contact us with any questions, concerns, or just general furthering interest. We strive to provide the best professional trainings and are working towards building a network full of excellence.
