Kathryn was drawn to becoming an End of Life (EOL) Doula from experiences with family and friends. As a voice actor, Kathryn narrated an e-learning Child Birth course and learned about a Birth Doula. When a friend mentioned “Death Doula” the lights went on! If you can have a supportive and enhanced birth with a Doula, then of course the same could apply at the end of one's life journey.
