Anitya Doula Services

About Us

Are you looking for a death doula in Chicago? Perhaps some end-of-life support? Or are you simply interested in planning ahead? As a death doula, I'm available to help take the pressure off of you. I assist and serve with different needs, so you can focus on loved ones.

What does a doula do?

Firstly, we offer non-medical, compassionate care. Often we serve those facing the end-of-life, partnering with support provided by other sources. For example, this support can include hospice, comfort care, and each client’s own network. We understand common conditions and diseases. This includes pain management practices. Also, we understand the dying process and helpful ways to ease suffering. Above all, we provide unconditional positive regard and no judgments. We do this while engaging in open talks with clients.

Death doula services we provide in Chicago:

- Writing your life story
- Writing your obituary, eulogy, and social media posts
- Creating advance care directives
- Companioning through the end-of-life process
- Care coordination
- Pre-planning for a funeral or memorial service
- Funeral celebrant
- Connecting you with appropriate local resources
- Qualified and reliable respite care
- And so much more

We serve and welcome all.

In addition, Anitya Doula Services is proudly anti-racist. We are also an ally organization to the historically underserved. This includes members of the LGBTQ+, BIPOC, Deaf, and Disabled communities.
