About me

I came to Soul Midwifery in 2013, after working in education and an educational retail business for most of my life. This was followed by a period of end of life caring for my parents. After doing an Introductory Day and my Level One training in that year, I went on to do the Level Two course in 2014 and the TLC (Tender Loving Care) Trainers’ course in 2015. Since then my love for and involvement in the wonderful Soul Midwives movement has continued to grow.

Soul Midwife

I volunteered to set up the online Soul Midwives Shop following my training in 2013, as a way of getting resources to Soul Midwives in between their visits to the Soul Midwives School. I feel immensely privileged to have been entrusted with the care of our Shop and to be able to interact with all its heart-warmingly supportive Soul Midwives customers. It’s my mission to be able to source all of the resources that Felicity, our founder, outlines in her books, to help us all in the amazing work that we are called to do. You can visit the shop here.

As I am currently working as a carer, I am lucky that I can also organise my other Soul Midwifery work around that. I am a Mentor for the Midlands, The North of England, and Scotland, and a Tutor for Introductory Days. This, again, is an immense privilege, as I get chance to meet and work with so many warm and wonderful Soul Midwives.

Having done the TLC (Tender Loving Care) Trainers’ Course, I am passionate about sharing this aspect of our Soul Midwifery work with other carers and care givers. I am equally passionate about raising awareness, whenever possible, about the hugely positive contribution Soul Midwives can make to end of life care.

Thank you so much for visiting my website. I look forward very much to meeting you – as a Soul Midwife, Mentor or Tutor.

A Brief Guide to Soul Midwifery

Soul Midwives are non-medical, holistic companions who guide and support the dying in order to facilitate a gentle and tranquil death. Soul Midwives (who are both men and women) regard every dying person as if he, or she, is the most important person in the world. All are cared for as if they are a cherished family member.

They  offer a range of gentle therapies to soothe and re-assure and are skilled advocates and advisors. They are non denominational in their pastoral support, encouraging  deep conversation, with love and dignity.

Their work may begin from point of diagnosis and continue until the final day of life, with encouragement and support to living life fully, until the end.

Soul Midwives are helping to transform the personal and collective experiences of dying and  living, within the community, by helping any one facing  the end of life to experience  a  tender, peaceful and conscious death.

The Soul Midwife’s most important role is to provide comfort, continuous support and reassurance in helping a dying person to experience a tranquil and dignified end to life.

The 12 Principles

  • To work as non-medical holistic companions who guide and support a dying person in order to facilitate a gentle and tranquil death.
  • To support and recognise the individual needs of the dying person and ensure they feel loved and supported.
  • To create and hold a sacred and healing space for the dying person (whether in a hospital, a hospice or at home).
  • To respect and honour a dying person’s religious/spiritual or atheist/agnostic beliefs and practices.
  • To work as non-denominational, multi-faith practitioners who honour the dying person’s beliefs about life, death or the afterlife.
  • To listen, provide gentle therapeutic techniques, and ensure compassionate care at all times.
  • To ‘serve’ our friend; not aim to ‘fix’ or ‘rescue’.
  • To give healing, using sound, touch, colour, scented oils or other gentle techniques to alleviate pain and anxiety.
  • To keep a loving vigil.
  • To work holistically with the spirit and soul of our friends at all levels and stages of transition.
  • To support families and their loved ones, giving loving care with a human touch.
  • To provide comfort, continuous support and reassurance in helping a dying person to experience the death he or she wants.
