Denise Love

About

Denise Love began her professional life as a registered nurse before quickly discovering that it wasn’t just the medicine she offered people – but the kindness that supported healing, or made death more tolerable. 

Following that discovery, she began midwifery training, and again felt that ‘being with someone’ had a much greater impact on wellbeing that most ‘treatments’. She set up an in-home palliative care service, where often one of the only ‘tools’ she had for comfort and care was herself. She eventually set up a full-time doula service for birthing and dying people.

For the past five years, Denise has been living and working in remote rural Cambodia as a registered nurse – using those skills in general health, and helping midwives who work unassisted and without medical back up.
