Hi! I'm Merrick. I am the face behind 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 imagined that my experience with birth would extend beyond my own. That was until I witnessed the incredible home birth of a beloved family member. It ignited something inside of me and I wanted to experience more. I realized 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 trained birth doula, I will be with you. I will encourage you, empower you, and support you to my fullest. I see pregnancy, birth, and the growth of a family as one of the most beautiful things about humanity. I am privileged to help women and their partners make these experiences as positive and healthy as possible. I am certified through DONA International and I am proud to offer support to families in Calgary and the surrounding area.
