Welcome to Purely Doula Care

Congratulations on your new addition. Preparing for the birth of your little one can be so exciting and exhausting. Just like planning for a wedding or a cruise, it can be done. But having a planner or guide makes the experience more fulfilling and less stressful.
Mercedes Snyder Lake Tapps, WA - Doula

Hi! Thank you for visiting my page and learning a little bit about me.


It is my utmost pleasure to meet with families and help create a beautiful labor and birth experience. I am a very laid back, approachable, attentive and informative person. Informed choice is very important to me and I believe "knowledge is power." Birth to me is a normal and natural process and should be respected as such. I think there is nothing wrong with the quiet or loudness of birth. Everyone creates their own beautiful labor song. 

My background:

I am very well versed in hospitals, if you plan to have a hospital birth. I have worked in hospitals since 2009 as a medical assistant, labor/delivery health unit coordinator and patient care coordinator. I feel that helps me to better be able to assist in understanding the medical environment and make a more fluid team for you, in the medical setting. I have also attended a number of out of hospital births as a Student Midwife since October 2016 and feel comfortable supporting mothers and families in birth centers or at home. It is always my goal to help create a space of comfort and freedom to labor.

Out of Hospital Birth




" During labor it was comforting to know that she was by my side the entire time, giving positive energy and support during such a monumental time. In addition, she was a great help for my husband, to give him the guidance in how to best support me. Her passion and enthusiasm as a doula made her a critical partner for us, and we were thrilled to have her part of our birth experience." -K. Ming

"Couldn't have asked for a better person to be involved in my pregnancy and birth. Such a caring and calming soul. Always there to help in any way and never failed to calm my nerves and doubts. I was not getting the experience I wanted with my midwife and truly believe it was because of this amazing woman I still came out with such amazing and happy memories. Would recommend her to anyone looking for extra support and care during such a special time. Will definitely be calling in the future if another sweet one enters the picture."-B. Hope

"Her spirit and personality were (always are)  just so sweet and genuine. She's the loveliest person to be around and she truly cares and loves others. I couldn't ask for anything more. This is Mercedes gift from GOD and I am so truly happy and overjoyed to have experienced her works as my Doula." -K. Queen
