Martha Roth-Irwin

*Martha Roth-Irwin, *End-of-Life Midwife, spent 30 years as a birth doula and midwife attending to the needs of families at the beginning of life. She now uses those skills for end-of-life care. With an unsustainable healthcare system and the insurance business indifferent to needs of individuals and families, the time has come to promote awareness of the need for humane care of our dying. The first step to awareness: conversation.
