Working with Kaitlyn and doulas Catherine and Alyssa was an absolute dream. Trusting someone with your newborn child is no easy feat. The moment after speaking with all three of them, I felt their warmth and expertise. I was able to enjoy the first 6 weeks with my new baby because I was getting high quality care and support from this team.

I can't say enough how grateful I am to have found Kaitlyn and Wild Mother Path. I was searching for women and birth workers who honored and respected the beauty of sovereign birth. I was connected with a Doula, Lauren, and she was the perfect soul to enter my birth space and encourage me through my labor. She embodied what it means to hold space for women giving birth. She came in and was a breath of fresh air for me and my husband. I also worked with Ariana who cared for my household postpartum and she has been wonderful in these early days/weeks since I've given birth. She has made the most amazing meals to help nourish us and has been really thoughtful about what she can do to take a load off of us caring for the household. She is very resourceful and I'm able to mostly rest in bed while she visits. You never truly know what you will need when you are pregnant and postpartum and the best part of Wild Mother Path is that the team has been super flexible when things come up. Kaitlyn is so quick to respond and show up when needed! Kaitlyn also got me in touch with Suzanne to support me with nursing questions and guidance and Suzanne came to help me immediately! Suzanne was very personable and was able to offer great tips that have made such a difference for me and my little one. I highly recommend this service if you are a first time Mom 💜

As first time parents, we were really looking forward to finally getting some sleep. We spoke with Kaitlyn who was very helpful in explaining the whole process. We had a "test night" with Chelsea to see how we liked having her come over and watch our newborn while we slept - and we loved it. So we had her come over weekly after that! Chelsea was fantastic from the start. She always showed up early and was eager to help. She kept notes throughout the night and would send us a "report" on how our newborn's night went. She would text us the next day with helpful sleep tips for when we were on our own. My wife and I have been very happy with WMP and would recommend them to anyone looking for a night nurse or doula.

We had our twins in August 2023 and Wild Mother Path helped us tremendously. We started with a phone call with the owner, Kaitlyn, to determine our needs and preferences. She provided us with a Sibling Doula the night I went into labor to stay with our 5 year old since we are new to the area and had no family locally. Then we started with Suzanne, a former NICU RN, as a night doula to help us a few nights a week - a total lifesaver. We had total piece of mind having Suzanne tending to our babies overnight. Once they were sleeping through the night around 11 weeks, we began working with Chelsea during the days. She has a kind hearted disposition and was nurturing and gentle with our girls. She tended to all their tandem bottle feedings, started with purées eventually. She gave them tandem baths, dressed them, etc. She took them for stroller walks, talked and played with them all day. She was flexible in helping us cover special events and travel, and very communicative about our girls’ care. She would send me pictures when I was working or out of town. She helped with dishes, light cleaning, and laundry. She would even jump in to play with our older daughter when she was home from school. I highly recommend Chelsea as she really developed ways to comfort and work with twin infants. Overall, this was a great experience and they really helped us bridge the gap with no family in the area.

Wild Mother Path was such a key piece in us feeling supported in the early days after our son was born. Kaitlyn was so easy to work with in getting things set up a few months before he arrived and Suzanne truly was the perfect fit for our family. Her empathetic personality and years of experience and expertise are such an incredible combination. We felt so comforted having her in our home and taking care of our son and can’t recommend her more highly! Thank you Kaitlyn and Suzanne for your incredible support:

EXCEPTIONAL! I took a chance on Wild Mother Path being a first time mother not knowing what to expect working with a Day Time Doula and Night Time Doula. We worked closely with Kaitlyn, Suzanne, Alyssa, and Kennedy. Every single one of them is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, kind, and empathetic to a mother AND father's needs and emotional states post partum. We initially signed up for only a few weeks of night support. But after seeing the doulas in action and how much we were learning, we quickly booked an additional couple months worth of not only night time care but day time help. Suzanne was a God send. When I left the hospital after giving birth, my nipples were bloody and blistered. Suzanne showed me how to breastfeed, trained baby how to latch, showed us how to bathe our baby, how to soothe, ways to hold her, and was able to determine the cause of our newborn's digestive issues-she had awful reflux and had colic. She is now thriving and sleeping throughout the night from 8pm-6am at 9 weeks of age!!! In addition- she cleaned our home and helped my husband and I around the house including our daughters laundry. Alyssa was able to recognize from the beginning that our daughter was in pain and discomfort due to her reflux; as a first time mom I did not understand what was wrong. She was quick to identify what was wrong and gave wonderful guidance and help! She is incredible! Kennedy was so personable and if not busy with the baby and soothing baby back to sleep she was always busy doing household stuff that I just didnt have the energy or time to do. She is always smiling and is always so happy to help in whatever way is helpful to mom and dad. We cannot thank you enough Wild Mother Path for saving us!! You literally saved my sanity and helped guide me through the toughest transition in my life!! Thank you so much!!!

I received the “Closing of the Bones” ceremony with Ariana and it was the most exquisite experience I could have had after my birth. Her presence is so healing and powerful and every mother deserves this gift, post birth. It was gentle, nurturing, healing and the massage was exactly what my body needed to acknowledge the life altering experience of giving birth. I am so grateful and for sure will be doing this after every baby!!!

Catherine Hummel January 5, 2024

Wild Mother Path is a lifesaver for families! We hired Kaitlin and her team when we welcomed our 2nd, and I wish I had known about this with our 1st kid. We had the utmost confidence that Penny was in excellent hands with Suzanne and Kennedy (Kimmi). We were able to get rest without worry.:: my husband and I were saying how much more restful we feel this round as parents. Bonus, Suzanne is incredibly helpful with breastfeeding at the beginning, and just tons of knowledge. Cannot recommend this team enough!!

Madi Palermo January 3, 2024

We are beyond blessed to of had the opportunity to work with Kaitlyn and her wonderful team of doulas over these last several months with our third child. I cannot say enough about this team and their knowledge, expertise, professionalism, reliability, and dedication to the care they provide. Kaitlyn was always receptive to feedback and very prompt in her responses. I appreciated the attention to detail and great communication between owner and staff members. Beyond caring for my son, the doulas were wonderful and went above & beyond by checking in on my mental heath, offering help with housework, & even provided last minute flexibility in arrival/departure times to accommodate for my family’s schedule. I would highly recommend Kaitlyns team to anyone needing overnight help with a new baby! It was truly a lifesaver for our family & busy schedules.

Jessica Latchana December 28, 2023

Kaitlyn was kind, quick and happy to answer any questions! She picked up AND delivered my vitamins making my life with a newborn a billion times easier. The vitamins were also beautifully packaged which was an unexpected bonus! Both my husband and I were extremely happy with her services and will definitely be using her again in the future!

Alyssa was with our family for 6 weeks and made a significant impact during her time. Letting someone into your home while you sleep is the most vulnerable position to be in and I’m here to tell you to trust the process and it’s (and YOU’RE) worth it to be your best self and parent. Alyssa walked alongside us and suggested swaddling again at 8 weeks which immediately improved our babies sleep. She made gentle recommendations regarding sleep schedules and bedtimes. She was a 3rd adult in our corner to troubleshoot what worked and didn’t. She provided reprieve and a few solid night sleeps a week to recharge my husband and I. My only regret is not using her before our sweet baby boy turned 8 weeks old. 💙

Kassy Archer April 29, 2023

Wild Mother Path was a lifesaver!! I had postpartum health issues and ended up in the hospital three more times. I could focus on my health knowing that they were at my house taking care of my baby and my family. I ended up needing round the clock help when I got home and they adjusted the schedule so quickly. Every doula that helped us was so nice and professional. They taught us so many things as first time parents that we still use today. I could not recommend them more. I will definitely be using them again when we have a second child.

Austin Newman March 17, 2023

Kaitlyn has been such a tremendous help for my baby, me, and my partner. She is so knowledgeable, calm, kind -- everything you could want or need. I've had so many questions during and after my pregnancy, and she has helped me through them all! She's provided hands-on help with breastfeeding, helped calm my crying baby (!), and offered me reassurance when I thought things weren't going as they should. She has experience from multiple settings - the hospital, outpatient work, and she's a mother herself. I absolutely recommend her!!

Lauren Kiser January 2, 2023

I've been working with Kaitlyn through my second pregnancy and I would absolutely 10/10 recommend her to any woman walking through pregnancy - whether it's your first baby or your tenth. Kaitlyn has such a gift of being able to truly SEE you, to hold such tender space for even your most vulnerable of moments, and to really help you in trusting yourself in the moments where you question everything. Her extensive knowledge and expertise from being both trained in the allopathic realm of medicine AND her lived experience in the more holistic realm of medicine is the perfect balance for any mother -- she truly knows what she's talking about and has helped me navigate some major decisions with such confidence & ease. I am so grateful for Kaitlyn and the tremendous support she has/continues to offer me through my wild pregnancy. She truly was made for this work, and it's evident in her energy & her passion & her heart. If you're feeling called to be deeply supported through pregnancy/birth/postpartum, even if just virtually, SHE IS THE ONE. Hire her. You won't regret it. <3
