About Lila


I fell in love with midwifery during a rigorous year of training at Maternidad La Luz in El Paso, Texas, graduating in April 2010. Thereafter, I began assisting Sybille Andersen, of Nantucket, with her home birth clients on Martha's Vineyard. I have spent the past two winters abroad, apprenticing and exposing myself to a wide range of birth experiences. The winter of 2011, I worked with the well-known traditional Mexican midwife Angelina Martinez, who provides midwifery services and well-women care with a hearty blend of traditional mexican and western medicine. This past winter, I was head midwife at Mother Health International's Earth Birth Clinic in Northern Uganda (visit my blog for more on this at I have now attended 200 births, including those in the home, hospital and birthing center. I place great value on continuing my education and expanding my scope of practice. I am happy to be living on my beautiful family farm and sharing my passion and carefully gathered skills with the community in which I was born.
