Home Funeral Guidance
Atlanta Death Midwifery is committed to reconnecting to our heritage and empowering families to care for their own at death. We offer education and support to communities as they prepare the body of their loved ones for home vigil or burial. We hold space around the vigil and organize transportation to burial or cremation.
Home Funerals can be the first step to a healthy grieving process. Often times our loved one’s body is removed quickly from our care. If we allow ourselves this time to pause, to sit with the body, to care for the body, we are given time to gently move through the initial moments of grief.
In the state of Georgia, families have the legal right to keep the body of their loved one at home. Many people, including law enforcement and hospital staff, don't realize this is an option because funeral homes have been the standard procedure for so long. We are creating conversations with funeral directors, crematoriums, and cemeteries who are willing to work with families who choose home funerals.Death Midwives are advocates and help families plan ahead for challenges they may encounter.
If you are in need of home funeral guidance, please complete the contact form and we will be in touch within 48 hours.
Atlanta Death Midwifery believes that educating the community about the various options for caring for our loved ones who are dying and honoring death will change the culture surrounding death.
