Are You Ready to Start Your End of Life Doula Business?

End of Life Doulas are filling the gap in care for those at the end of life.   As mainstream medical practitioners struggle to meet the needs of our ever-growing elder population, the new non-medical profession of End of Life Doulas and Doulagiver Specialists are helping to support medical personnel by supplying the needed time with this special population. End of Life Doulas are providing holistic care that is complimenting mainstream medical and supporting patients and families with the highest care model possible.

Ten years ago, when I envisioned the End of Life Doula movement, it was a three phase approach.

  • First, create the awareness that we needed this new End of Life Doula profession. – DONE!
  • Two, create the best training program to educate End of Life Doulas to excel in the profession. – DONE!
  • The Third phase is to get the End of Life Doulas working in their communities. – We’re working on this now!

The education doesn’t serve its purpose if you can’t put it into practice. Doulagivers has devoted thousands of dollars developing our Business Building and Marketing Materials to help our Doulas start their practices and start earning an income. We are so grateful at the response and success that our doulas are having. We have also heard from many doulas in the community that they are struggling to build their business and don’t know where to start. Many are discouraged and some even thought of giving up! At The International Doulagivers Institute we want to support OUR Doulas.  This is why we are opening up our International Doulagivers Association  Membership for our Doulas. We want to support everyone to get out there working to support the families and patients who so desperately need the help. We are all in this together.

I know how hard it is to start a new business in a brand new profession!

You want to feel inspired and be able to share your new Doula business with everyone in your community- but you’re not really sure how to do it. Then, you say to yourself, “maybe I can’t do this.”

I’ve seen this struggle again and again. So I created a way to support our Doulas in helping to bring their practices to life!

This is why we are opening up our International Doulagivers Association  Membership to Doulas. We want to support everyone in their work to help the families and patients who so desperately need the support. We are all in this together!

“I knew that I had the gift to be a great end of life doula- I just did not know the first thing about setting a business up. The Business Building Tools allowed me to have my new doula business up and running in a little over a month. I could have never done it without the business and marketing tools!” – Beth M.


“It is like having Suzanne B. O’Brien, RN as my personal coach! Every month I am learning something new to grow my business! Thank you Suzanne and Doulagivers!” – Margaret G.


“The ideas that I have received from Suzanne and other Doulas in the Monthly Mentorship have allowed me to reach my community and let them know about my new Doula business. I would have never thought about networking that way. I now not only have clients- I have a referral network of like minded professionals referring clients to me.” –  Ben Y.
