Whitney found her passion in birth long before she was ever pregnant herself! While in paramedic school, she was introduced to the documentary “The Business of Being Born”, and everything just made sense, in a very strong way. As a newcomer to the United States (Whitney was born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada and moved to South Florida in 2011) she was unaware of what it looked like to be pregnant in the US, and what options families did or did not have when it came to their pregnancy and birth plans. The film opened her eyes, her passion, and her future to a whole other realm of possibility. Fast forward five years, and after having her first daughter at home, surrounded by her loving and sacred birth team and husband, she knew that not only has motherhood changed her world and perspective, but her pregnancy and birth had also. A fire was lit and Whitney felt an urgency and a calling to encourage, inform and assist other families in their visions for their birthing and postpartum experiences. It is her mission to provide support, love and empowerment during this sacred time.
Whitney is the Regional Director of BirthFit West Palm Beach. She is also a Certified Doula, HypnoBirthing Practitioner, Paramedic, Placenta Encapsulation Specialist as well as a Midwifery Assistant. Whitney resigned as a firefighter/paramedic in 2016 to put her energy and love into birthwork, full force.
It is imperative to Whitney that every pregnant mother knows how much she and her growing baby matter in this world, and how sacred, empowering, and impactful her pregnancy, birth and postpartum journey can be.
Whitney resides in West Palm Beach with her husband, Mac, and their two daughters, Nova and Sloane.

Kelsey Castellon has been serving women in the birth community since 2014. She is a Certified Birth Doula, HypnoBirthing Practitioner, Lactation Educator and Midwifery Assistant. Her certifications are through DONA, Sacred Doula and the The HypnoBirthing Institute. Her main focus in the birth community is to educate, support, and nurture women throughout this incredible journey in their lives. She feels that it is so important when mothers are supported from the beginning. Kelsey believes that all births are important, and strives to be there for each mother no matter the circumstance, as all women deserve equal care and respect. Prior to birth work, Kelsey was on track for becoming a Labor and Delivery RN. It was after the birth of her first child that she knew there was a bigger need of support for laboring women. She shifted her focus to becoming a Doula and hasn’t looked back. She has since welcomed her second child born at home in 2015. She is well versed in Aromatherapy and enjoys educating herself more in the Essential Oil world. She likes to bring Aromatherapy to her births, acting as another tool for relief and relaxation. Aside from birth work, Kelsey lives in Lake Worth with her husband, Alex, their two boys, Daniel and Noah, and fur baby, Missy. In the upcoming future she has plans to complete Midwifery school with the goal of becoming a Licensed Midwife in mind!
