NHFA March 2024 Webinar

Register to receive a recording of our webinar on Thursday, March 14th at 8pm ET | 5pm PT – Defending Community Deathcare in the Midwest with Lauren Richwine of Death Done Differently. 

Join us for an update on the legal landscape of home funerals and community deathcare in the Midwest, learn how a federal lawsuit currently unfolding in the state of Indiana has the potential to affect the work for us all, and discover how you can be a more legally informed advocate in your own state.


One of the earliest Death Doulas/Midwives to offer active support and in person mentorship in Northern Indiana, Lauren Richwine recieved her initial training with the Earth Traditions Program. She is a facilitator through the “Respecting Choices Advance Care Planning” Program with Parkview and is currently a member of the National Association of Certified Death Midwives (NACDM), the National End of Life Doula Alliance (NEDA), and the National Home Funeral Alliance (NHFA). 

In response to a cease and desist issued against her business by the Indiana State Board of Funeral and Cemetery Service in early 2023, Lauren has teamed up with the Institute for Justice to defend this important work. Together they have filed a federal lawsuit against the state of Indiana for infringing on her first amendment right to free speech.
