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

Simone was my birth and postpartum doula. I highly recommend her.  I feel so incredibly thankful that she came into my life for the birth of my daughter. Simone was incredibly supportive, reassuring and responsive throughout my pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I was very anxious about giving birth and she took so much time to talk to me about my fears and make concrete plans to address each and every area.  She suggested helpful tools to prepare myself for birth that were tailored to my specific needs. She gave me resources and tools to deal with my anxiety and also to learn about all of my options. During the birth...where to begin?  She was phenomenal and I can't imagine going through the birth process without her. She was an incredible support for me and also for my husband. She gave excellent emotional support as she has a calm and soothing demeanor while also being extremely relatable and easy to talk to. She was responsive to my every need and gave me massages, set a tone in the room with lighting/aromatherapy/etc, and talked me through what was happening. When she arrived the tone of the hospital room completely changed and became much more serene and focused on the birth. She made sure that my first nursing session happened seamlessly.  I am so grateful for this as it has served as the foundation for successful breastfeeding. As a postpartum doula she provided whatever support I needed which ranged from breastfeeding support, pumping guidance, light cleaning/organizing and most importantly talking to me about all of the changes that were happening.  Snone continues to provide me with resources and advice.

I highly recommend Simone to anyone who wants a supportive partner in preparing for birth, during birth, and/or during the postpartum period. She is extremely knowledgeable, talented, caring and passionate about her work.
