Cambridge Soul Midwife – End of life companion
I am a nurse, with over 25 years’ experience caring for, and sitting with, the dying and supporting their families.
In my role it is an honour to support people, in the days, weeks or months leading up to end of life. I can also help with coming to terms with sudden or unexpected death. The ripples of these situations leaves an impression on your heart forever; whether you are a relative, friend or a professional. Many family members cannot deal with the complexity or emotions of death, but I can support you.
Death is not always natural, but when it is happening, it becomes a natural process which can be interrupted by medical interventions for so many reasons. The truth is that some people are lucky to be saved (and live to die another day), but sometimes allowing death is kind, and an act of pure love. My ability to listen in a non judgmental and confidential way is key to us building a trusting and honest relationship.
Everybody who is dying is someone’s child. Whether their parents are alive… or not. They deserve to be looked after, and to be allowed to have companionship, support and guidance. That is what I aim to do. I always follow my heart, because the head is far too sensible and the heart instinctively knows what is needed in these situations.
I can help in a way that can be tailored to an individual’s needs and am open to discussing this. It is mainly to enable people to be at home to die, or I can visit in nursing homes or hospitals as a guest. Most people meet me once and discuss things going forward. This fee would be £40 for an hour with no obligation to commit to further visits. I can meet in a mutually agreeable location.
I hope you feel you can contact me to discuss further so I can guide you or your loved one to the end of their life as they deserve. We only have one chance to get this right.
