BOOK SIMONE JUNIOUS AS YOUR DOULA ALERT: I'm writing a book for this one because Simone was literally the glue that my boyfriend and I needed in order to get through this pregnancy experience! We were new to this whole thing and becoming new parents. I can't even imagine going through this process without her. 

From the first time we hopped on a Zoom call to meet Simone, the chemistry was immediately there and we just knew she was the one for the job! She was not only very knowledgeable and answered my hundreds of questions (even if I repeated them a few times), but I could tell that she took her job seriously and cared for her clients like family. I felt completely comfortable with her at one of the most vulnerable times of my life, and I knew she had my family's best interest heart!

On this journey to becoming a new mom, Simone really took her time to explain the benefits of keeping things as natural as possible. She taught me about the benefits of delayed cord clamping, breastfeeding, etc. Learning to listen to my body and acting accordingly was new for me, but Simone was there every step of the way to remind me that "my body knows what to do." That line in in itself is what helped me get through my birthing experience without any medication. Simone was my biggest cheerleader!

It's funny because I heard of doulas, but it wasn't until I met Simone that I really understood the true value of having a doula--especially as a Black woman.

She's really the best of the best & anyone that has her as a doula is truly lucky! I'd recommend her to all the  pregnant mommies out there! Do yourself a favor, and get Simone as your doula because I'll definitely be booking her again for the next baby.

Simone is patient, knowledgeable, supportive and calming. She pushed me when needed and comforted me during the hard times. I appreciate her being my advocate when the hospital staff was pushy and disregarded my wishes and best interests.

Simone was very professional yet felt like a close family member. She made me feel super prepared during my pregnancy, for labor and my 4th trimester. With the classes she prepared us with, I was able to make confident decisions in the L&D room regarding our care. I also loved that I was able to text her wIth any questions anytime. She made helpful suggestions on everything before  the baby arrived regarding his care and even afterwards when we had breastfeeding difficulties. If I can be guaranteed a girl, I'll hire again for the next go around!

Having a doula for the birth of my second child was great. Simone was calm, knowledgeable, supportive and helped me have the birth that I had imagined for myself. My family is now complete, but I'd recommend her to any expectant mom.
—Stephanie T.
My husband and I hired Simone as our doula right before the pandemic hit in March of 2020.  It was the best decision we made.  We did the full package and it was a blessing to have Simone there every step of the way to answer all of my questions and concerns.  I was having my first baby and really did not know what to expect.  Simone gave me tons of holistic suggestions, but also did a great job of listening to everything that I wanted for my pregnancy.  I felt completely comfortable and was able to be vulnerable with Simone which goes a long way during a time like your pregnancy.  I even sent her pictures of what I thought was my mucus plug passing lol (I was THAT comfortable with her).  Simone really earned her keep during L & D.  She was there every step of the way rubbing me, making sure I had everything I needed the entire time and she kept the essential oils flowing in the room.  My husband and her were a great team in the delivery room and we even had nurses sneaking into our room to catch the vibes we had set (my husband had created a great music playlist).  Simone is all about energy and vibes and she was a great fit for our family.  I couldn't imagine giving birth without her.  If I have a second baby Simone will be there.  I felt safe and I felt like I had the best possible advocate.  If you are looking for someone that will be your birth warrior, keep you informed, answer your texts at all hours of the night, and become an extension of your family, Simone is the person for you.  It is over a year later and my family still keeps in contact with Simone.  Whenever I have a question or need a resource I tend to check with Simone first.  Look no further, you have found the right Doula!

I was worried that we wouldn't be able to afford a doula but Simone was able to work with us. Simone was so good during labor, and I had a long one too! She found the acupressure points that actually triggered contractions for me, and gave me advice about when to increase or decrease Pitocin. She also followed up with me several times after birth even though that was not part of the package. Since we're first time parents we were really clueless, we couldn't have done it without Simone!
—Diana Wong

Amazing experience! Thorough from beginning to end, I would recommend for all expecting mothers. Pre and postpartum care was amazing, still reach out from time to time to this day!
—Chenise G.

 I came across Simone when searching for a doula in late 2020. She responded promptly and set up a free consultation. During our consultation, Simone put my mind at ease. It was clear that she had the experience and professionalism I was looking for. Simone was in ongoing communication with me and encouraged me to call or contact her. From the beginning she made it clear that she was not just there to support me but my family.

Simone accommodated by offering us both virtual and in person sessions. She provided us informative and engaging classes that discussed pregnancy, labor and delivery, breast-feeding, and newborn care.She made recommendations on herbs, exercises, diet, and birthing supplies.Each session ended with me feeling more prepared.

On the day of my labor ,She coached me through breathing techniques and positioning to further active labor. Her coaching and support allowed me to labor at home saving me hours in a hospital. Ultimately,We achieved our primary goal of giving birth to a healthy baby with a healthy mother and our secondary goal to deliver vaginally with minimal interventions and no medication.There’s no way I would have achieved this without her support. Her calm caring demeanor and professional skill allowed me to feel confident, supported, and focused. 

After delivery she provided me with a warming tea and set up my placenta encapsulation! She never made our experience feel rushed and was 100% present throughout our labor and delivery. In the days that followed, Simone video chatted and visited in person to assist me in trouble shooting some breastfeeding techniques. 

In short, Simone was integral in me having the birthing experience I wanted! I would recommend her services to anyone! She is invaluable and working with her was amazing! She gave us an “a to beyond z” experience and I will always be grateful to her!
—Janelle Brown

WOW ! Where do I begin ? Simone is literally the best doula I could have ever asked for. I interviewed 5 doulas before meeting Simone, and realizing we were 100% in alignment around thinking, and the care in which I would need to bring my healthy sunshine into the world. 

Simone, was very informative, patient, caring, communicative, advocate for me when needed, and nurturing during my entire process. While words cannot begin to express in the short amount of time how phenomenal she is, I have anyone know reading my testimonial, you will not regret having Simone as a Doula. 

During my birth, Simone took a matter of a few minutes to get to me, and did not miss a beat, nor did she take a break ! She stayed with me through the wire, and ensured that I was cared for the entire way. We manifested together my birthing plan and ensured that it was followed step by step. 

I am thankful to have had Simone for my pregnancy, my sunshine birth, and my postpartum care. It truly has been a blessing. Her will to be open minded, and have amazing wisdom, and expertise lead my partner and I, to be confident and comfortable about our journey to birth at home.

With my second child, I decided to have a home birth with a midwife and a doula. My first child was born in the hospital, with a traditional OB/GYN, no doula, and I had an epidural. I can honestly say I would not have been able to have such a smooth and relatively fast birth without Simone's unwavering support. As soon as my contractions were close enough, she came to my home. She was ready to support me in any and every way. Simone was more like a coach to me. She had me do several techniques to help my labor progress. She had me walk up and down my stairs, and doing lunges during every contraction in order to help the labor move along. She had me use my labor ball, she used aromatherapy, massage, and also incorporated acupressure points when my labor got really intense. Aside from pushing me and being encouraging when I needed her the most, she was also excellent at knowing when to just let me be in the moment and let my husband support me. Simone was also a great support for my husband as well, as he told me later he was feeling overwhelmed. But I wouldn't have known otherwise. She also worked very well with my midwife and her assistant; they all made a wonderful team. I couldn't have asked for a better birthing experience. Simone was also very supportive before and after the birth. She gave us tips on how to encourage labor days before the actual birth, checked in with us daily as my due date was approaching, and she was at my home after the birth to help with lactation support and general newborn care. She is kind, warm, funny, very knowledgeable, and very giving; I felt that I could text her anytime with any concerns and she always gave a quick response. I truly loved having Simone as our doula, I would definitely use her again in the future and highly recommend her!

Simone is an efficient and committed individual that has helped me in more ways than I can explain. I was looking for an accredited African American mentor to help me begin my medical journey and I found just that. As her mentee, she helped me to become a certified doula and allowed me to shadow her, while she does her amazing work. She continues to give me ample opportunities to learn, experience, and work in my dream field. Simone has taught me to be the best support person in and outside of the delivery room, she is always readily available to help at any time, I could not have been so successful straight out of college without her.

I hired Simone to help me with my pregnancy and the delivery of my first child. It was pretty late in the pregnancy when I hired her, and I was beginning to have a few complications.  This was a scary time and then to add the pandemic to the equation was utter chaos. Simone stepped in and began to work literal miracles. I had to be induced early because of the complications and found out I was Covid positive the day of induction. i began to panic but Simone talked me off the ledge and helped me via cellphone naturally, no c-section,  deliver a beautiful and healthy baby girl. Now if that's not a miracle worker!!! I can't wait to have baby number two with her!!!
—M B.

Simone just goes above and beyond! My husband and I are first time parents and we're looking for our doula to take us through the pregnancy and birth process. We live far away from home, I was at first considered high risk, so we needed the support, especially through this pandemic. Simone was always available by phone, virtual visits for classes. She was thorough, discussing anatomy and birth processes that first time parents are not accustomed to. When it was go time, she NEVER left our side. I was in labor for over 48 hours and she stayed the entire time, talking with nurses and doctors to make sure I was comfortable and being heard. Thank you so much Simone. We really couldn't have brought out baby girl into the world without you.
—Deja T.
Simone was truly a blessing. I began my search for a doula late in my pregnancy and was hopeful to find someone to accommodate me & thank God Simone happened to open up her availability. She was professional, friendly, COMFORTING, and always pleasant. She helped build my confidence for delivery and not at one moment made me feel uncomfortable. She was forward when she needed to be. Her advice was always on point. My birth was exactly as I imagined and I felt sooo supported. Simone supported me in ways I truly couldn't have asked for. I'm so lucky to have met her and for help to bless my growing family. Thank God for Simone.
—Journee Wyatt
Simone was an amazing doula, and addition to our labor team. We felt safe and protected having Simone around, as she did everything in her power to protect our peace and execute our birth plan as best as possible. She provided a sense of comfort and security, and kept us well informed every step of the way. I honestly don't know how we would have managed without her, and we are so grateful to have had Simone as our doula. Even after giving birth Simone provided additional post-partum support and went the extra mile to help us feel secure and comfortable with adjusting to our new lifestyle. 100% would recommend Simone to anyone looking for additional labor or post-partum support.
—Stefanie Bassaragh
Simone helped me deliver my second child, a healthy baby boy about a month ago :-) She was extremely helpful and professional, both during the virtual appts and throughout the delivery. I was induced and she provided me with helpful tips to aid the induction process. My entire labor took less than 24 hours. Things happened pretty quickly and Simone was still able to get to the hospital on time to help with the delivery, and then she stayed afterwards to help me nurse for the first time. Post-birth, she's continued to provide valuable breastfeeding support, and with her help nursing has been much better than it was with my first. She treated us like family, and was a calming presence at a very stressful time (I gave birth during the height of the Omicron wave and was positive for COVID during my delivery). I highly recommend working with her! 
—Rita Kutner
Simone is the best doula to grace this earth. She is heaven sent. She has been an asset to our pregnancy and delivery experience. I would absolutely recommend her to every pregnant mom looking to have a delightful and educated journey to motherhood. She remembered every small detail and unique part about me, my partner and the birthing experience we longed to have. She provided the best classes and best support system and exceeded my expectations. Her postpartum support was extremely appreciated and she got me through some very tough days as a new mom. We love you Simone!! I'd have 1000000 more babies just so you can spoil me, as you have!
After interviewing a few doulas- I just knew Simone was "the one". She was super professional, organized, and most importantly responsive. She provided constructive feedback without pressuring any decisions. We not only gained a doula, but we now consider her family! Although my birth experience didn't go as personally planned, her unmatched support, nevertheless, was so appreciated (esp the teas and supplements she was able to provide). She has been so wonderful! Not just as a doula but as a counselor for our random questions we had. Thank you so much for your support. So excited to have met you and have you be a part of our journey! We love you Simone!  Until next time .. lol 

Simone was absolutely amazing to work with. This was our first child, and as a black woman, it was important for me to be able to find a doula who would understand my apprehension with the medical field. Simone was able to calm my fears of childbirth and gave me holistic alternatives as an option. She helped me learn to advocate for myself and always made it feel like my husband and I had someone else in our corner. 

I definitely would encourage anyone to work with Simone as their doula. She is a straight shooter and will honestly tell you how things can be. And she will always lookout for the best interest of the mother and the baby. She also provides a space of nonjudgement and allows the pregnant couple to take the lead.

My husband and I loved working with Simone, and if we have another baby, I'm sure without a doubt, we will call up Simone to be our doula again.
