Most people are very uncomfortable with the idea of death and dying and avoid the serious conversations and preparations involved in the process (one which we'll all experience eventually). On this episode of Renoites, we welcome one of the founders of the Doula Co-op, Emily Barney, to talk about what the death industry looks like today, and some of the better ways we can approach and talk about the end of our lives and the lives of our loved ones.
Some of the questions we explored were about what the common practices look like today, how the death industry can take advantage of tragedy to exploit bereaved people, what natural death and home funerals look like, what a doula's role is for people who are nearing death (and for those who expect to still have a long life ahead of them), the challenge of burnout for people in highly emotionally demanding jobs, why you need to create a living will TODAY, and much more!
