What’s a bereavement doula?

A bereavement doula…

is someone who supports and holds space for families through miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss.

Hi, I’m Abby Jorgensen, longtime bereavement doula. I’ve had the honor of walking with over 150 families as they welcome their little ones, particularly when they have to say hello and goodbye in the same breath. As a sociologist who studies families, and as a loss mom myself, I work to make sure that loss parents feel heard, loved, and held throughout their grieving process.

Please reach out to me at abbythesociologistdoula.com if you are a loss parent looking for resources or support.

And if you’re interested in becoming a bereavement doula, welcome home and welcome to your community! Even though this website is still in its early stages, you’ve found your people. Email me at abbythesociologistdoula@gmail.com, or set up a coffee with me here, and let’s connect.
