Soul Midwives

We are back! Burnt at the stake hundreds of years ago, yet we live again.

Soul midwives is a strong movement in the UK directed by Felicity Warner, that has been ongoing now for 20 years.  Soul Midwives are companions to people at the end of life. They are skilled in the art of caring for the dying.  They use traditional skills that were forbidden with the introduction of Christianity but now remembered inline with their Indigenous Celtic roots. There are 12 principles that guide the soul midwives in their care.

Here is a link to the website Soul Midwives 

My question is: given that all nurses care for people who are in the stages of dying, shouldn’t soul midwifery be included within current nursing curricula?
