Death Doula and Caregiver

Welcome to Light of Love

My name is Mare Martell. I am a graduate of Going With Grace’s End-of-Life Doula training. I have achieved the goal of becoming NEDA Proficient as a Death Doula and am a current member of NEDA (National End-of-Life Doula Alliance).

What is a Death Doula?

The doula’s goal, and role, is to help the client feel safe and comfortable, complementing the role of the healthcare professionals who provide the client’s medical care. Unlike a physician, midwife, or nurse, a doula cannot administer medication or other medical treatment or give medical advice. An individual may need to complete training to work as a doula, although trainings and certification processes vary throughout the world.

I am non-medical support through the grief and paperwork. I assist in End-of-Life planning, resources for the dying, as well as a viable support during the entire process. I offer help creating ritual and/or space for grief as a Death Doula. Conversations they may not feel comfortable with having are welcomed. If they are beyond my skill level or resources, I am an advocate for professional level care.

I am a NOTARY PUBLIC in the state of Tennessee.
