After giving birth to our first child in a hospital I knew I wanted a different experience with our second...my husband however thought the idea of a home birth was radical and was very unsettled about the idea...that is until he met Kelly. After our first interview with Kelly he was 100% confident and at peace with the idea of me birthing at home.
I can’t say enough about how much I love Kelly! Going into her home for prenatal appointments was warm and welcoming...she was just as thrilled about the growing human inside of me as I was. (This was very different from the cold/ long waiting experiences I had in my OBs office) I loved that my other children were able to go along with me to our prenatals and be a part of the experience. (My son loved listening to the baby’s heartbeat with the feta scope! They were always welcomed with open arms and I was even so impressed with the way Kellys’ youngest daughter Audrey was with them that she became our nanny when we traveled on business.
When I delivered with an OB the first time around I didn’t know him...at all...except for the fact that he was a well-known doctor and had recently gotten the flu shot...by the time Kelly helped deliver my baby I knew every member of her family, I knew her faith, I watched her parent her children, we had deep meaningful conversations...by the time Kelly helped deliver my baby...I knew her!!! And even more I loved her!! I loved having someone help deliver my baby who I not only was confident in her abilities to handle any situation that could potentially arise...but that is was someone I had a relationship and felt comfortable with.
I have now had 2 home births with Kelly and they were beautiful and peaceful...NOT without hiccups but Kelly always knew how to handle any oddity that came with my births. I have also already referred Kelly to 2 friends...one who already had a great experience birthing at home with her and the other who will get to experience the joys of home birth with Kelly this coming summer.
Kelly is extremely knowledgeable and experienced but has this beautiful peaceful confidence about her that I absolutely admire! I would hire her 100 times over and could go on and on about stories and memories I have made with Kelly and my home birth experience.
Kelly helped with the births of our youngest three children, and I don’t know what I would have done without her. She is professional, warm and caring, and most importantly, a great listener; very attuned to what we needed (and wanted) during each birth. The education she provided to us as a couple was a valuable part of our education and openness to home birth. Kelly walked us through the typical procedures, answered all our questions and prepared us thoroughly. After the first birth in the comfort of our own home, we realized that, if God should allow, we never wanted to have anything other than home births!
I received unhurried, excellent personal care from Kelly during each pregnancy, such a contrast from traditional OB care. And when birth time came, she worked tirelessly to meet our needs and keep us all safe and healthy! She also celebrated each arrival with us as enthusiastically as if she were part of our family honestly, at this point, she kind of is! We are thrilled to recommend her as an excellent care provider!
Choosing to have a home birth was not a decision my husband and I took lightly. In fact, we started doing research before we were pregnant. Safety was always our top priority, and this led our search for a knowledgeable and experienced midwife. Kelly Aguilera checked those boxes plus was someone we felt comfortable with. I always appreciated her wise counsel, sense of humor, gentle spirit and confident care giving ways. She walked with us through two pregnancies and two very different deliveries. I always felt in capable hands. If we were to have another baby, sheâ€™d be one of our first calls.

I highly recommend Kelly!! She helped deliver my two youngest daughters. After having one hospital birth and one birth with another midwife, I had no idea that birthing could be a positive experience. Kelly was aware of my needs and attentive to my situation. She walked in with confidence and encouragement so I could focus on what I needed to do. She was aware of the fact that well meaning family were stressful to me and advised me accordingly. She is amazing and to this day, 21 and 23 years later, I am still so grateful Kelly walked me through labor and delivery of two very precious girls! ❤️
