Empower Yourself With Birch Leaf End of Life Doula Care

Assisting with planning, guidance, and emotional support during palliative care or at end of life.

Natasha Prax

End of Life Doula

My mission is to bring support, comfort, and peace to the dying and their loved ones. This work can be done alongside hospice staff as additional support, or as an independent contractor. As the End of Life Doula field is newly emerging, and quite new to Alaska specifically, it is my goal is to represent the field as professionally as possible. To me this means always learning and aiming for the highest levels of training and certification available.
