Labor of death much like the labor of being born?

My grandmother is in hospice care as of this morning. We aren't sure how long she has left. No one can tell us, of course.
I seem to recall reading something about dying being an act of labor like that of being born. I can't remember if it was a story, an article, a quote, etc. Searching has turned up little, so I am hoping the hivemind can help. Any ideas? Or any other productive reading material while keeping a dying woman company?
