Whitney Cantrell

Whitney discovered her passion and desire to support families through the birth and postpartum period in 2012. After experiencing a truly redemptive VBAC birth with her second child, she started her journey to a career in supporting women and their families through labor and birth. Whitney trained as a labor doula with the certifying organization ProDoula and hit the ground running with an excitement to walk with families through the amazing journey of labor and birth. In the very first year of opening her first labor and postpartum doula practice in 2013, she passionately supported 40 families as they welcomed new babies into their families, and that was just the beginning. Since running her own practice for almost 3 years, serving close to 100 families, and with the great desire to be able to serve more families with the same level of expertise and compassion, she decided to partner with Merrill Durham to open Nashville Doulas Services LLC. Whitney is passionate about helping women find their inner strength and wisdom, and to provide unbiased care to all types of families.

When Whitney is not supporting families as a doula and running the communications and marketing of Nashville Doula Services, she is spending time with her husband and three children, Cole (5) and Bray (3), and new baby Asa born February 2016. Whitney enjoys exploring nature with her kids, going boating with her family in the summer, reading about natural and organic living, and going on as many date nights with her husband Michael as they can manage.
