Welcome to the official website of Felicity Warner, the Soul Midwives School and the International Soul Midwifery movement.

20 Years of Award Winning Training

Soul Midwives lovingly ease the passage of the dying, to ensure that death is a dignified and peaceful experience.

Felicity, mother of the Soul Midwives movement, has trained many people, both men and women, in her gentle methods which are helping to soothe the dying and bring a new dimension to how we care for everyone at the end of life. To hear her speaking about her work on Channel 5 News click here.

Her award winning courses have been running for over 20 years.

In 2017, Felicity was named End of Life Care Champion by the National Council for Palliative Care at the House of Lords. She was also named End of Life Doula of the Year in 2017 by the Good Funeral awards and was named one of the year’s Most Inspirational Women of the Year by the Daily Mail.

This website gives information about the practice of Soul Midwifery, details of training, how to Find a Soul Midwife and other helpful resources.

Soul Midwives regard every dying person as if he, or she, is the most important person in the world.

They offer a range of gentle therapies to soothe and reassure and are skilled advocates and advisors.

They are non-denominational in their pastoral support, encouraging deep conversation, with love and dignity.

Their work may begin from point of diagnosis and continue until the final day of life, with encouragement and support for living life fully, until the end.

Soul Midwives are helping to transform the personal and collective experiences of dying and living within the community, by helping anyone facing the end of life to experience a tender, peaceful and conscious death.

Support our work

We help many people to support their dying loved one by offering holistic and spiritual support, and receive no funding for our work. Our free referral service runs 365 days a year and we aim to put people in touch with a Soul Midwife in their area, or give advice within 48 hours.

Perhaps we have already helped you or your family or a friend?

By making a donation, you’ll be helping us to help more people who are often at a time of great need. It will also help us to train more Soul Midwives and develop our service.

Donating by card is the easiest way to support our work. If you prefer to gift by BACS or cheque please contact us for details. With thanks.

Soul Midwives

Soul Midwives lovingly assist and accompany a dying person on their journey, and can provide their services within a home, hospital or hospice.

Soul Midwives School

The Soul Midwives School is a place of learning where Soul Midwives can learn their craft in a tranquil and nurturing environment.

Sacred Oils

Working with Sacred aromatic Oils for spiritual care is part of a long healing tradition.

As a “mistress of the oils”, or Myrrhophore, Felicity Warner uses her knowledge to work within clinical care and in her Soul Midwifery work.

Sacred Oils introduce important and ancient tradition into cutting-edge  medicine.
