MIDWIFEING DEATH looks at the invaluable contribution an amicus (friend of the dying) makes to the care of someone in the final stages of life.
The book offers a model of care that attends to the whole person; a model that is not only appropriate for those whose death is predictably close but for anyone who has a life-limiting illness.
The practices outlined address an individual’s response to the threat of death, and the need for them to preserve their dignity, their autonomy and their highly valued precious normality.
It outlines ways family and friends can be present to these needs and how they can guide, support and advocate for a dying loved one.
