Interview with a Death Doula

A little while ago, I was in conversation with Pamela Fayerman, a noted Vancouver health reporter who runs her own health reporting website called Medicine Matters. Pamela and I first connected after the death of my Mom in 2014 but we’ve kept in touch since then as colleagues. Upon her learning that I have become an end of life doula, she offered me a fabulous opportunity to chat and write a guest post for her site. Below is an excerpt of what I wrote – to read the entire post, please see the article on Pamela’s website.
