You need to have love, passion, sympathy, speak softly and really care… When you are caring for others, when you are mothering a new mother, you need all of the above, and more… Lila has it, she has the strength to make you feel secure, she has the knowledge to ease your mind, she has the loving, tender heart and hands to make you feel like you can let go, trust her with all… she is the one to have by your side when you need help, when you need an extra hand, when you need support and understanding in those oh so hard first weeks after birth and those oh so long pregnant months. She truly is wonderful. -Maria D.

From the time she was small, Lila always showed her caring and nurturing nature and knew she wanted to be able to help others when she grew up. Her life led her down very different paths until she became pregnant with her first child. During her pregnancy, she discovered her passion for helping and supporting women as they became mothers. As her passion for learning about childbearing grew, her calm, warm and welcoming personality made her the go to for all of her friends and family when in need of advice or support. This is when she assisted her first birth and realized that becoming a doula was what she was meant to be. She noticed first-hand what a difference having unconditional and nonjudgmental support can do for laboring women. Lila decided in July of 2015 to seek certification through ProDoula in order to offer her clients the best experience. Lila also recognized that families had a critical need for sleep and added training and certification for sleep consulting from Mommywise to her skill set to better serve the needs of families. Her ability to find what works best for different clients and families, attune to their needs, and staying calm during stressful situations, all while being her spunky self, make her a great addition to any family’s support team during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum recovery.
Lila, together with her partner Robert, recently purchased a home, where they live together with their funny, energetic 3-year-old daughter Camila, and soon to be 2-year-old son Emerson. When she is not attending to her clients she works on her DIY home remodel projects, enjoys exploring new healthy recipes to cook and tries to find time to be active, all while trying to keep up with her little ones.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?I would love to travel to Venice. It has so much history, beautiful architecture and an incredible atmosphere surrounded by canals and gondolas. I would just want to walk around, be wowed by each canal and spend a lazy, easy going vacation there while soaking it all up.What was your dream job growing up?I always wanted to become a Veterinarian. I love animals and as a child would always bring home anything that looked like it needed help or was homeless( followed by my mom trying to get rid of it). Ideally I wanted to become a Vet and travel to Africa, where I would work in an animal rescue center.If you could live in a book, tv show, or movie,what would it be?Although I would love to pick Harry Potter due to the magic, the incredible beasts that exist in that realm and the countless number of interesting people and places to see, I am seriously concerned over the fact that, what if i was a muggle?Who is your personal hero?I can’t actually say I have one. After many years I have realized that the only person you should consider your personal hero should be yourself. Which is why I choose every day to be my best version, because after all, I am watching.If you could have any super power, what would it be?I would be able to become invisible. I would be able to go anywhere, travel anywhere, and only make myself known to those I choose.
