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

My husband and I were so impressed with Simone from the first time we met her. She was so friendly, open to our many questions, and also had specific cultural knowledge from her vast experience that really impressed us. I immediately felt comfortable speaking with her about very personal matters. During our prenatal visits Simone was very thorough and went over our entire birth plan with us. When I had questions about specific treatments or aspects of birth, Simone gave us informative answers but also left all the decisions up to us. In the weeks leading up to labor, I was in contact with Simone via phone and text, and she always answered right away, even super early in the morning. When I was actually in labor at the hospital, Simone was wonderful and so supportive with her constant calm presence. She did everything from handing me my water bottle, to spraying water on my back while I was laboring in the shower, to massaging my back when I had bad back labor, to standing right next to me and being a supportive presence while I was pushing. Having her there was also tremendously helpful for my husband. She provided him with reassurance, and he said it was great to have someone knowledgeable about birth there to support him while he was supporting me. After the birth, Simone stayed with us to help me begin breastfeeding. She helped me get the baby latched and showed me a couple different positions to try. During the postpartum visits, Simone was also incredibly helpful. The baby was having trouble latching on one side, so Simone showed me alternative positions, and I was able to feed the baby on that side thanks to her support. I loved those postpartum visits with Simone, not just for the specific help with breastfeeding, but also because she is such a pleasure to be around. She is so easy to talk to and never just felt like a doula; she felt like a close friend or a sister. I highly recommend Simone as a birth and postpartum doula!
