Death Midwifery with Olivia Bareham

Launch Medicine

In episode 59, Aaron interviews Olivia Bareham, a death midwife, master teacher, and founder of Sacred Crossings, the Institute for Conscious Dying and Alternative Funeral Home, about the beauty and teachings in death. Olivia speaks to her first, impactful experiences with death as a nurse’s assistant and with her own mother’s passing that inspired her to revere this great transition. She discusses how her relationship with death has changed her and Sacred Crossings’ three-day funeral ritual to honor the deceased. Aaron and Olivia also touch on the intimacy of alternative funerals, the Art of Death Midwifery training program, and how to empower people to view death as a gift.
