Cecil Whitney


I am a birth doula and placenta encapsulation specialist, serving Seattle and South King County. I am currently pursuing birth doula certification through PALS doulas, and training to expand the services I offer. My work as a doula is grounded in my feminism* and a deep commitment to health and reproductive justice. I believe wholeheartedly  that every person who becomes pregnant deserves a doula, whether or not pregnancy and birth lead them to parenting, however their bodies look and function, and whatever their gender and family structure.

I am particularly excited to serve folks in the queer and trans community. I am also energized to help improve access to doula care by offering low- and no-cost services to those who would benefit from them, and volunteer through Open Arms Perinatal Services and St. Joseph Medical Center.

Outside of birth work, I am an artist, teacher, and aspiring farmer. I live in White Center with my partner, our two sweet pups, and two wonderful housemates.

*My feminism is intersectional and inclusive of queer + trans people, disabled people, and POC. I do my best to use language and practices that honor many genders, bodies, family configurations, and values.
