Krista Hughes - Soul Midwife

From Heart to Soul

I’m so proud, humbled and privileged to be a Soul Midwife! All through my life, even as a girl, I’ve had people drawn to me during their dying times, and I’ve always felt a strong connection with those at end of life. It’s almost as though it was in my DNA.

My training with Felicity Warner as a Soul Midwife has supported me so beautifully in unlocking those intuitive skills, and I have felt my innate understanding of death and dying develop as I in turn have supported many people from very diverse backgrounds, faiths, ages and cultures through their dying time.

I am passionate about supporting everyone in unlocking their own ‘inner teacher’. I believe the ancient skills and knowledge are innate; we have just sometimes lost sight of them. A strong part of my ‘Soul’s Work’ is to help us all rediscover those skills, so that families and communities are able to support everyone through their dying journey. Soul Midwives bring death and dying right back into the community, so that they are part of life.

I am also a Reiki MasterTeacher, and a yoga teacher, and I use my understanding of energies, breathwork and the importance of a deep emotional and spiritual connection in supporting ‘body and soul’ in the dying journey and transition after death.

I am the Regional Mentor for Soul Midwives in Greater London and Surrey, and I support newly qualified and experienced Soul Midwives in these regions. If you are looking for a Soul Midwife then please contact me or contact the School directly.

I also teach on the Soul Midwives Introductory Days, which is the first step of the training, in Surrey and Oxfordshire. If you are drawn to this work, then visit for more information and for dates or feel free to contact me for a chat.

I am also a TLC trainer. TLC  workshops offer ‘Tender Loving Care’, a simplified form of Soul Midwifery, focusing on practical ways to support those facing End Of Life.

Learning Opportunities Coming Soon

Krista shares her story with The Mirror newspaper

Opening up about her role as a Soul Midwife, Krista talks about caring for those at the end-of-their life and helping them through the ‘dying stages’ to have a ‘good death’. Coming up with a birth plan is very common – but it’s a lot rarer to sort one for your death.
