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

Hiring Simone as our doula was the best decision we could have made for the birth of our daughter. From the moment we met Simone, we immediately felt comfortable with her and really "clicked." We were impressed by her depth of experience, but more importantly were drawn to her warmth and easy-going personality.

When I went into labor, Simone was a crucial part of our birth team. I had an very long labor that lasted 48 hours, and Simone was with us the whole time. Simone was an extremely hands-on doula, and always seemed to know what to do to ease my discomfort. Her lower back massages were amazing! She kept me and my husband calm throughout the process, which as first time parents, was often intimidating. Simone was there with us the whole time, provided much needed continuity since the nurses and residents kept switching over very frequently. Simone even slept on an uncomfortable chair with a yoga ball as a footrest in the hospital room without complaint!

Once our daughter was finally born, Simone, who is a lactation consultant, was there to help our daughter initiate breastfeeding. I can't underestimate how helpful this was, and I think was essential in setting the foundation for me to be able to successfully breastfeed. Simone was also very helpful during our postpartum visit, and helped us troubleshoot breastfeeding and other issues. It was a huge help knowing I could always text or call with questions during those intense first few weeks with a newborn. As first time parents, just knowing we had an experienced expert to call gave us so much peace of mind. Almost 4 months later, Simone still routinely checks in with us to see how we're doing and answers any questions I have.

I feel so fortunate to have had Simone as our doula - I can't imagine going through the process without her!
