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

Simone was a perfect guide for the birth of our first child. She made us feel confident and comfortable from the start and since day one it was as if we had known her for ages. Simone still feels like a beloved friend. Her experience and respect for our preferences were invaluable and made us feel confident going in to our birthing time. She was able to provide great recommendations for an accupuncturist and chiropractor when my baby continued to be breech a few weeks before her due date. I was relieved when Simone promptly met us at the hospital after midnight on a Sunday when my labor started. She proovided supprot for my husband and made me feel  secure and taken care of. For  8 hours of unmedicated labor she helped my husband feel confident and calm and her hands on massage during intense contractions and dimming of the hospital room lights were an absolute life saver for me, not to mention her constant verbal encouragement. She supported me uncondititonally when I wanted to have a natural labor and also when I requested an epidural after 8 hours. Our baby was born a short 4 hours later after only 30 minutes of pushing during which she provided much needed encouragement, good humor, guidance and love. More than all of that her expertise proved invaluable as she kept on eye on the monitor during labor- I honestly don't want to think of how much more complicated our labor might have been if she was not there. Several times she was able to alert the nurses that our baby's heart rate was decelerating, and they were able to give me oxygen and our baby was born healthy and thriving despite the cord being wrapped around her body and neck several times. Simone also stayed to make sure our baby latched on and to guide me through the nursing process. Her advice was invaluable and her follow up visit after we were home helped smooth out any nursing kinks we were experiencing. She continues to check in with us and provide great advice.
