Soul Midwifery

Soul midwives offer holistic and spiritual support to people who are dying. A range of gentle therapies such as Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Hand Massage and Flower Essence Therapy are available to help soothe and reassure, along with non-denominational spiritual support that aims to encourage open conversation with love and dignity.

Support may start from point of diagnosis and continue until the end of life, up to and including end of life bedside vigiling, or may only commence in the final weeks of life – whenever the support begins, living as fully as possible in a way that is meaningful will be encouraged.

An initial session takes 2 hours- this gives adequate time for an in-depth consultation, enabling both client and therapist to understand how best the client’s needs may be met. During this consultation the range of therapies and support available will be discussed. A hands-on treatment such as reflexology, aromatherapy or flower essence therapy will conclude the initial session, with regular sessions to follow at intervals that work best for the client.
