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

I'm so happy we decided to get a postpartum doula, and especially grateful we chose Simone. We are first-time parents and anticipated feeling overwhelmed when we got home with our newborn - and we did! Simone jumped right in on her very first visit with us and was there for whatever we needed - there are so many things we would have been clueless about without her. I planned on breastfeeding but was unexpectedly put on a medication that wasn't safe for nursing for the first couple weeks after our baby was born. Simone was amazing about helping to educate and encourage me about keeping my milk supply up so I could nurse once I was off the meds. Truth be told, I was a bad student and had trouble committing to pumping around the clock. Simone regularly checked in with me and adjusted the plan to my needs. And when I ended up deciding I was okay with giving my baby mostly formula and supplementing with breast milk, I never felt judged by her. She was always very supportive, checked in with me all the time, and helped and provided resources with so many things beyond breastfeeding: bathing the baby, swaddling, baby-wearing, sleep and other care tips/tricks, daycare research, sterilizing/washing bottles, etc. We were comfortable with Simone from day one, she was amazing with our baby and with us, and I honestly don't know what we would have done without her.
