PREPARATIVE SUPPORT

The Preparative Support Package:

Over the course of 4 one-on-one sessions, Rebecca works with you to co-create and implement your ideal death & dying experience. Guided by intentions set during a consultation preceding the first meeting, sessions unfold organically to meet the needs of that particular moment in the journey.

The time may be spent in conversation, where a safe space is held to observe and engage fully with what is occurring, to explore beliefs and fears around death & dying. Life review may be facilitated, where guidance is offered to discern meaning and legacy. Tools to foster healing and/or alleviate suffering may be utilized- such as EFT, plant medicine, guided meditation, as well as rituals and ceremonies. Assistance will be offered in identifying where cycles can be closed, forgiveness offered, final wishes fulfilledA vigil plan may be designed and communicated to loved ones, and decisions for end of life care may be explored.

These sessions are designed to honor all of the emotional, spiritual and logistical needs when facing the end of life.

4 sessions (≈1.5-2 hours each) plus one

Hospital / Deathbed Visit:

This offering is designed to bring sacredness to the dying experience when end of life is imminent, or death has already occurred. It may be geared toward the dying, or utilized as a support system for loved ones and caregivers as they navigate this phase of the dying process. This may look like (but is not limited to): 

• Creating and holding sacred space / final goodbyes /

sitting vigil

• If a death plan was created, advocating for the honoring of that plan with visitors and/or medical teams

• Performance of sacred rituals

• Energy work / closing of the chakras

• Facilitation of the bathing ritual, where loved ones offer a final act of love after the passing

• Emotional and/or spiritual support for loved ones

• Assistance collaborating with medical and hospice teams

• Assistance reaching out to next of kin

1 visit (≈3 hours) - $333

Grief Reprocessing:

In this session Rebecca works with the caregivers and/or loved ones after some time has passed following the death, to review the experience and reprocess grief. Often the stress experienced during a loved one's passing will cloud one's vision to some of the most beautiful moments at the end of life. Being able to review and reframe with a doula can be extremely helpful in moving through grief and allow for the next chapter to begin with love and gratitude.

1 session (≈1.5 hours) - $120

Stillborn or Infant Death Support:

This unimaginable pain does not have to be held alone. In the event of a stillborn or infant death, doula support may be utilized to honor the life and death of the baby through ritual or ceremony, or simply as guidance in navigating the emotional, spiritual and logistical impacts of the event. A doula will walk this path with you, by your side in every capacity.

1 session (≈1.5 hours) - $90

*We understand that nature does not work on our schedules. Even when an unexpected death occurs, Rebecca can be reached on short notice and will make every attempt to accommodate.
