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

I highly recommend Simone Toomer as a post-partum doula. We started with 2 weeks and extended our time with her because she was great to have on hand. I did not know what to expect for the days after my delivery, as this was my first baby, and I wasn't sure if I truly needed a post-partum doula, but I am so glad I had Simone in those first few weeks home from the hospital. She provided a voice of reason and support, an ear to listen and understand and an energy and spirit to brighten our groggy days.

Simone did everything from organizing clothes and toys in the nursery to teaching me how to pump and sterilize bottles and pump parts. I was so thankful not to have to read any instructions. She never took a break unless it was to sit and talk to or comfort me. She was also very responsive when we were apart. Simone also made my husband feel more comfortable with changing and eventually bathing our son. Simone was also generous enough to bring me supplies for my recovery from her personal stash, which I really appreciated and felt was above and beyond the call of duty.

She also shared her personal experience with he daughter which helped me look to the future. Her advice wasn't just for those first weeks, but for months down the road. As a further testament to that, she continues to check in with me and offer advice and links to relevant aritcles. It would be remiss to not mention that my baby also took to Simone and enjoyed when she would engage him and spend time with him to give me a break. Finally, on a personal note, I found Simone really easy to talk to and someone who became a friend.
