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

We’re so lucky to have found Simone. My husband and I reached out to her in a panic about a week before our baby was to arrive, having just learned unexpectedly that delivery would be induced ahead of schedule. Simone was completely unflappable and happy to work with us on short notice and was a reassuring presence with invaluable advice (which breast pump and when, how to dress baby for the trip home) even before our baby’s early arrival. 

Simone has such a lovely, calm and warm presence. When she showed up at our door it felt like Mary Poppins had arrived. She didn’t make me feel inadequate because I knew absolutely nothing about caring for a baby (it turns out there is a technique to changing a diaper) and helped us with everything from streamlining our changing table organization to helping me keep on top of the piles of laundry that babies inevitably produce to starting creating an environment conducive to a good sleep schedule. And her expertise in lactation was critical in helping me with breastfeeding after complications from delivery delayed the arrival of my milk supply. And, maybe best of all, she made me feel very cared for and helped me with my rest and recovery. She focuses on the whole family, not the baby exclusively.
