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

Simone worked with our family after our baby was born and was one of the most valuable resources I had in the post-partum period.  Our first meeting was just hours after we got home from the hospital and having extra support heading into that first solo night was just what we needed to help our confidence. Right out of the gate I had some real struggles with breastfeeding, a tounge tie, terrible engorgement, three rounds of mastistis, you name it, and Simone was the best resource I could have asked for.  She not only helped coach us in person, but pointed us to articles, meet-ups in our neighborhood, products I'd never heard of (silverettes forever!), and methods (vibrators have far more uses than I ever imagined) that helped us tremendously and with those tools we made it to a year+ exclusively breast feeding (one of the few benefits of working from home due to the pandemic.)  She also had so much advice on caring for our baby, coaching us through his first bath, baby wearing and more. Simone was also an incredible listener and heard and acknowledged my emotional struggles and felt like one of the only judgement free shoulders I had to lean on when I needed it most.  I am so grateful we found Simone and for her help achieving my breastfeeding goals.
