A service you can depend on when you need it most


Our reason for being is to improve the end of life process, often a challenging and baffling time for the dying and their loved ones. As Death Doulas, we bring a sense of agency to the dying, helping them finish their lives on their own terms and allowing them to leave behind their best legacy.

We complement one’s medical team through practical and emotional support, both for the dying and their loved ones. Our belief is that dying can be done differently. We are here to demystify and ease the transition through death. We serve clients face-to-face in the Greater Toronto Area, and virtually around the world.


One Step Beyond End of Life Services is led by Heather Spratt, MEd. Heather has been a home hospice volunteer since 2017 and earned her End of Life Doula Certificate with Douglas College. She is also a certified funeral celebrant through Life Celebrants International.
