This course allows for training with understanding...

" I have been to one of Annetta's talks relating to death and the role Doulas play and found it to be most enlightening...the End of Life Consultant, Doula and Advance Planning training course, I believe, is for both professional and lay persons on a topic that we all need to engage with, but more importantly the course allows for training with understanding. The issue of loved ones moving on is an area of heightened sensitivity and this course prepares the Doula in the practice of legal, moral, cultural and ethical positioning to enable effective support."
