Lila’s pull towards postpartum doula began after her daughter’s stressful first pregnancy and subsequent cesarean section. Her wish was for women to be able to enjoy the beginnings of motherhood. It wasn’t until after she witnessed her daughter's second pregnancy and healing VBAC with a midwife and doula that she realized she could help. The healing and transformative nature of childbirth is something Lila truly is passionate about. It is her desire to support the birth of mothers and uplift them postpartum.

Lila has a deep passion for children as well. She has been an infant swim coach for over 30 years.  She cares deeply about children and their families.  As a mother, grandmother, community resource and educator, Lila has been a mother to many.  Her cheerful and supportive demeanor will provide for a productive and positive transition.
