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

Where to start?! As first-time parents, my husband and I feel so lucky to have been connected to Simone and grateful that she came into our home and lives just when she did. Simone supported me and my family postpartum via overnight stays throughout the first month of my son's life. It was immediately clear that her expertise, perspective, and demeanor were just what the doctor ordered for that just-home-from-the-hospital, dear-in-the-headlights chapter. While I recovered from a cesarian and my husband transitioned back to work—and with both of families living in other parts of the country—Simone was the bedrock of the "village" we really needed. Her expertise around lactation and breastfeeding as well as general newborn care and development was absolutely invaluable and made all the difference in helping me feel more confident, empowered, and prepared as a new mother. I can't iterate enough how much confidence and peace of mind Simone helped instill in me.

Besides helping my husband and I catch up on some precious sleep, Simone armed us with everything from nursing, baby mobility, and soothing tips to diaper-changing, milk-storing, and baby-wearing hacks. I was super hungry for those pratical morsels of living with this new baby day-to-day! On a maternal care note, Simone kept a close eye on my "baby blues" and truly played a huge role in alleviating my new-parent anxiety. My husband and I were blown away by her above-and-beyond accessibility via text—an invaluable resource during those first weeks when I was questioning so much! Simone set a really fantastic note for our new family, and we truly hope to work with her again in the future. We'd unhesitatingly recommend her to anyone looking for postpartum support from a super qualified, knowledgeable expert who also keeps the best perspective, doesn't sweat the small stuff, and brings a sense of humor, warmth, and lightness into your home while she's at it.
