DOULA. ANTHROPOLOGIST. ACTIVIST.
Your doula and birth expert.
Håfa Adai, I’m Stevie Merino, an indigenous Islander born in diaspora raised in the LBC by way of Guåhan (Guam) & Borinquen (Puerto Rico). My life is all things pregnancy & birth! I have been a doula since 2015. I wear many different hats as a cultural/living arts practitioner, community organizer, anthropologist, birthworker, speaker, and trainer.
After becoming pregnant with my little one I felt called to this work, I jumped completely in and since then it has been a fast moving train! I’ve been a community organizer & activist since 14 years old, my politics shape the way I approach life & my work. I am executive director and co-founder of the Birthworkers of Color Collective.
