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

Simone was so amazing during my first birth that I couldn’t imagine not having her there for my second. This second birth was 1000x faster and more intense than my first, and words cannot describe how incredible Simone was or how thankful I am for having her supporting me.

Simone is so in tune with what parents need at any given moment--this time during our prenatal sessions it was helping me prepare for a likely faster birth. She also helped us process and reflect on the upcoming expansion of our family, and reminded us of things that we had forgotten since having a newborn for the first time!

The day of the birth, Simone and I were in constant contact throughout the day. When my husband and I left for the hospital, Simone didn’t even go home to get her bag, because she knew it would be fast and didn’t want to miss the birth! I felt so at ease when she arrived. Simone immediately began doing pressure on my back, because I was having back labor with every contraction. She literally did this pressure for every contraction for the entire 2.5 hours I was in labor. Simone was also such a positive, warm, and calm presence. I loved chatting with her between contractions before the intensity picked up. My husband is also so grateful for Simone. He knew that I was so well supported by her, and so, in turn, he was able to support me in other ways. During a super intense five minute-transition, Simone was there right in front of me, calmly telling me I was doing everything right. Her encouragement truly helped me get through that intensity, and I really don’t know what I would have done without her.

Once my baby was born, Simone helped us initiate the first latch and get off to a great start with breastfeeding. She also provided fantastic tips over the first few weeks as I struggled with oversupply and latching issues. Simone is really the most incredible doula, and I could rave about her all day long!!!
