Hi! I'm Merrick and I am the face of Contigo Doula. I am also a wife and a mother. My journey towards birth support began shortly after the birth of my daughter. I had a wonderful birth experience but I never really imagined that my experience would extend beyond my own. That was until I got invited to support the birth of a beloved family member. It ignited something inside of me and I knew that I wanted to support others throughout their own pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum journeys. That is when Contigo Doula was born. In Spanish, contigo means with you. As a birth doula, I will be with you. I will encourage you, empower you, and support you to my fullest to help you navigate your birth, your way. I see pregnancy, birth, and the growth of a family as one of the most beautiful things about humanity and I am privileged to help women and their partners make these experiences as positive and healthy as possible. As a DONA International certified doula, I am proud to offer professional birth support to families in Calgary and the surrounding areas.
