Testimonial for Simone Toomer, CD/CBE(DTI), IBCLC, CBC, LCCE, ISE

i've known Simone for several years since our years at Hunter College so when we reconnected I couldn't have been more happier when she told me that she was a doula. Simone was extremely helpful and informative through the process my family and I would endure. She prepared my husband with apps to download to mark my contractions while explaining how he would help me deal with my labor if she wasn't able to come to our home immediately. During my labor and delivery experience, she was readily available to answer ALL of my questions, checked in by the hour, and called to check in on my progress.

When my contractions finally began drawing nearer to each other, Simone encouraged me with natural methods to cope with the pain and to physically and mentally prepare my body. She never left my side and calmed my family down since this is the first grandchild in my family!  I can't thank her enough for her ability to calm me through the entire labor and delivery. From the techniques to contract to advocating on my behalf to avoid medical intervention to my body, my family and I are so grateful. I almost decided to go with an epidural, but she kept telling me to focus and concentrate and that I was in the homestretch. She worked with me towards my goal which was to give birth vaginally with no medical intervention and I'm happy she supported me through it!

Not only has she been supportive through my labor and delivery but also through my post-partum journey. Simone was very encouraging when I expressed my desire to breastfeed my newborn daughter and has provided unending support whether it has been through a home visit, a phone call, suggesting breastfeeding classes to attend, or texting her a few questions here and there.

Simone is patient, fun, encouraging, a professional and really cares about her clients. No expecting mom will go wrong with her. Thank you for everything Simone!
