COVID 19 UPDATE
Due to the current COVID 19 situation, I have sadly, but quite rightly, had to cancel all face to face meetings and connections. BUT, I am still working with patients and families via technology so please do reach out if you need support or advice. As Soul Midwives, we now have an SOS help line available via our website. Please follow the link below and one of us be in touch as soon as possible. Or alternatively, please reach out to me directly on here and if you are able, take a look at my Facebook page for daily posts and videos that may help.
This virus has made all our lives so difficult, especially for those who have lost someone because of it or for many who are still trying to support someone who is dying. Please know you do not have to do it alone, we are here to help.
Sending love and strength to you all xxx
Death is the only thing we have in common, it will happen to us all!
Soul Midwives are here to support those who are facing the end of their lives, not only to have a dignified, gentle death and enable their choices, but to help them truly LIVE as well.
We cannot fix or change what is happening. BUT, we can help, we can listen and support, without judgement, but with love and compassion.
WHO AM I?
Soul Midwife, Eternal Optimist and a big believer in open and honest conversations with a big bit of cake on the side.
Following a long career in care, I soon realised that End of Life care was where my heart and soul belonged. Being at someone's bedside as they took their last breath seemed the most natural thing in the world for me to do. This isn't just a job to me, this is part of who I am. I have vast experience in Domiciliary and Palliative care and as well as being a Soul Midwife, currently work part time at a local hospice supporting people whose wish is to die at home. I offer a wide range of End of Life support in the community, in Hospices, Care Homes and Hospitals and also for local businesses.
Having completed all my training at the Soul Midwives School in Dorset with Felicity Warner, I am Level 1 and 2 qualified and actively work around Sussex and beyond. I am also a Soul Midwife Mentor to all newly qualified Soul Midwives and TLC Trainer. TLC Training Days are a simpler version of Soul Midwifery, which can empower and enable people with the practical skills and knowledge to look after the dying.
I hold multiple qualifications including diplomas in End of life and Dementia care and The Care Certificate. I am also 'Sage and Thyme' foundation level trained.
I am fully insured and DBS checked.
WHAT IS A SOUL MIDWIFE?
Soul Midwives are non-medical, holistic companions who guide and support the dying in order to facilitate a gentle and peaceful death.
Soul Midwives draw on ancient skills and traditions, apply and adapt them to modern day life, and death, and treat dying as a rite of passage and a precious and sacred journey.
“The work of Felicity Warner and the Soul Midwives is absolutely crucial for those of us who believe that death is one of the most important moments of our life. By providing loving and gentle support, Felicity and the Soul Midwives support people to have the death that they want. What could be more important?”
