LILA AGUILAR Birth & Postpartum Doula,
Perinatal Mental Health Advocate


Congratulations on your pregnancy! The journey of pregnancy, labor, and childbirth is an incredible and transformative experience, and I am honored to be here to support you every step of the way. As your dedicated birth and/or postpartum doula,

I offer a wide range of services to ensure that your birthing and postpartum experience is as comfortable, empowering, and memorable as possible.




What is a Birth Doula?

A birth doula is a trained professional who provides emotional, physical, and informational support to expectant mothers and their families throughout pregnancy, labor, and the immediate postpartum period. My role is to be your advocate, your confidant, and your source of knowledge and encouragement during this incredible journey into parenthood.

Our partnership begins during pregnancy and lasts through the birth of your newborn. I will provide you with evidence-based information, answer your questions, and help you create a birth wishlist that aligns with your unique preferences and values. Together we will explore different birthing options, coping techniques, possible interventions, what-ifs, comfort measures and everything in between. Throughout labor I will support you in communicating your needs and preferences to medical professionals, ensuring that your birth wishes are respected to the best of our ability. I will help you through discomfort with breathing techniques, massage, movement, and positioning. I will follow your lead and work with you to find what works best for you in the moment.

The Labor and Birth Support Package Includes:

  • 2-3 Educational in-home prenatal visits (starting at 30 weeks gestation)

  • Workshopping your  birth preferences wishlist  

  • Continuous Labor Support

  • Assisting with Comfort Measures  

  • Advocacy and Communication between you, your partner, and medical staff

  • One postpartum in-home visit

When you return home, we'll have one final visit to check in and talk (if you feel comfortable and ready to share, we can  remember  your birth story) about postpartum healing and nutrition, infant feeding, rest, newborn care and what to expect in the coming days. 

  • Price: $2,000
