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

My doula experience was great. My first pregnancy was about nine years ago, and I knew I didn't enjoy my birthing experience. In the hospital I was rushed to diulate quicker, and when I couldn't deal with the pain I took an epidural which I didn't want to do. This pregnancy I was determined to let my body do what it is made for. During this pregnancy I was high risk due to high blood pressure brought on by the pregnancy. Even with my doctors encouraging me to have an induction due to my status as well as the hospital closing I stick to my guns. I  wouldn't have been able to do it without Simone supporting me by coming up with a birthing plan and staying with it no matter what. I starting have contraction on a Wednesday. Even when  I felt to go to the hospital Simone remained me of what I wanted to accomplish and remind me if I go to tge hospital to soon I may not be able to accomplish a natural birth free of drugs. We were in constant communication all Wednesday and Thursday. When I finally went to the hospital Friday I was 7 centimeters. Simone came a while after. She calmed me down and work with Corey on my breathing and helping me through the home stretch of labor. I later wanted to have an epidural because I was tried and couldn't deal with the pain anymore. Simone didn't make me feel bad for my decision. She made me feel comfortable with my decision even though I felt like I was letting myself down. Since having my daughter Simone has answer all my question and has been an extra support that all parents need.
