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

Simone was our postpartum doula. Once we got home from the hospital, she came to see us almost every day for the first week, and then gradually reduced her visits as we became more confident parents. Since we didn't have family with us for the first couple of weeks, it was invaluable to have Simone with us. She has so much knowledge about babies, breastfeeding, and recovery (for both mom and baby). What we probably liked most about her, is that Simone always offers multiple options and viewpoints, without pushing you into one direction or another, but instead left it up to us to decide which way we wanted to go.

Simone is a certified lactation consultant, and without her, I would have probably had a much more difficult breastfeeding experience. She realized right away that our little one had a too short lip and tongue tie. Something that not even our pediatrician had noticed, despite me raising concerns about issues with breastfeeding. Simone recommended an expert that cut our baby’s ties when she was only a couple weeks old. Breastfeeding was a breeze since then. There were other moms waiting to get their baby’s tongue ties cut, who had struggled with breastfeeding for months until finally someone told them it was the tongue tie. We were so lucky we had Simone!

Simone is very approachable, flexible and responsive. Anytime I sent a question (and I sometimes still do), she replies very quickly with helpful tips and advice. Simone was also an invaluable emotional support. She helped to calm us down, encouraged and supported us, helped us gain confidence as new parents, was great with our little one, and sometimes even helped to cook a meal or come up with easy recipes.

Without Simone, our start into parenthood would have probably been much more challenging. We are so glad we had her and if we have a second one, we definitely would want her on this journey with us again.
