Hi everyone! My name is Jaden Millner(she/her) I am located in Eden NC, I am the owner of Soleil Doula co. I finished my initial training with DONA in September of 2020, but I have decided to change agencies and am currently training as a full spectrum doula with Birthing Advocacy. I am a dog mom to the sweetest pup named Bear. A HUGE lover of reading and thrifting!!! Birth work has always been something that I have been interested in, even as a child I would pretend to be a midwife and my brother would be my patient. I found out what a doula was shortly after I had found out that I struggle with infertility, in that experience I felt called to serve others. My end goal is to become a midwife but I am so happy and fulfilled with being a doula so I plan to be here for a while. Thanks for reading! Feel free to search my social media!

Care philosophy

Every family deserves a doula, no matter their income, gender, sexuality, race, etc. I believe that every birthing person deserves to enjoy their birth experience and have the support needed to fulfill that.

    Jaden was really there for me during everything. I was having complications in my pregnancy and when she didn’t know something, she immediately did research and/or asked her mentor for additional information. During labor she was by myself the whole time advocating for me and my baby. I will definitely go to her again in the future!

www.thestatesvilledoula.com My passion for birth work began after the somewhat traumatic birth of my oldest in 2010. I left that birth with what I had believed to be empowerment but soon after, realized the empowerment I felt was based off of my consistently advocating for and defending myself in the birth space. I realized we shouldn't HAVE to fight for how we want to birth in order to feel a false sense of empowerment. Once I had this epiphany, I felt in my heart of hearts that I never wanted another birthing person to have to jump through hurdles to have the birth they desire. Now, I support all birthing people and their families through this journey called birth and I ABSOLUTELY respect and honor the process and the family. I finally went on to have two more completely healing water births and actually base the healing on becoming informed after my first birth. The well known quote "Choose a job you love and you will never work a day in your life," is my mantra. I love what I do, I love the people I meet, and I am humbled and honored to witness families being born or growing. In 2010, after the birth of my oldest daughter, I signed up with DONA as a birth doula. Since then, I have constantly immersed myself in all things pregnancy and birth. Once I moved to North Carolina, I decided that I needed a more inclusive and comprehensive training and decided to train through Bebo Mia, a Canadian based doula training agency. Through them, I grew as a person and as a doula and truly feel as though I am able to provide COMPLETELY unbiased and evidence based care and research to each and every person and family I meet. At the same time, I trained and certified as a placenta specialist through IPPA, International Placenta and Postpartum Association. Recently, I became certified as a stillbirthday birth and bereavement doula offering bereavement services and support to those who experience a loss in any trimester of their pregnancy. Lastly (but not least), I am a trained Hypnobabies® Hypno-Doula supporting families who choose hypnosis for childbirth. ​

Care philosophy

www.thestatesvilledoula.com I am a strong believer in birthers, babies and the inherent wisdom and instinctual capabilities within all of us to give birth in the way that suits us best. I believe in birth and I believe in support during birth. You know how best to birth your baby, whether it be via cesarean birth, vaginal birth, water birth, or fully medicated birth and I am here to support you.

    With Covid visitor restrictions, I knew my husband and I needed additional support for our birth. Due to Staci being a verified doula through our local hospital system, she was able to attend in person. It was an amazing experience. She not only supported me, she supported my husband in the ways he needed. Her presence helped me to have a calm and successful VBAC. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for support!

    Mystique is an extraordinary birth worker in our community. They understand the need for not only diversity and inclusion, but equity amongst birthing families as well. As a non-binary, Black, queer, femme, Mystique is able to navigate and meet the needs of marginalized populations at such a vulnerable time. Hands down, Mystique is one of my favorite birth workers and they are highly respected by the families they serve and their peers.

A postpartum doula in Winston-Salem, NC is meant to help the entire family and their role is not just limited to the birthing parent and newborn. A doula provides physical and emotional support to parents and siblings, but they also offer information and advice regarding how to feed, bathe, swaddle, and soothe the baby.

They also often help with postpartum depression issues, and are considered child care “consultants” rather than medical professionals. Many postpartum doulas in Winston-Salem, NC offer a range of services that can help with parents trying to adjust to a newborn child. These services often include:

  • Sibling care
  • Assist with household chores

A postpartum doula in Winston-Salem, NC can have a lasting positive impact on a family and help them feel more confident about their parenting role and the way that they feed and nurture their baby. They might offer advice regarding feeding, bathing, and parent-baby bonding.

It is important to note that a postpartum doula might offer advice but is not expected to provide medical care of any kind or serve as a replacement to an accredited physician. Postpartum doulas are also not qualified to prescribe medication.

Many new parents want to know about certified postpartum doulas and how exactly they are certified. Since the demand for postpartum doulas has greatly expanded in the last several years, the number of reputable postpartum doula training and certification programs has grown in Winston-Salem, NC. Training criteria can differ from program to program, but most follow a similar curriculum which includes core academic curriculum and practical hours and real-life care experience.

One of the most common national postpartum doula training certifications comes from DONA International. A postpartum doula usually receives about 27 hours of practical training before they are a certified postpartum doula.

There are also CAPPA-certified postpartum doulas in Winston-Salem, NC, as well. These doulas were certified by the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association, an international organization that certifies doulas and other childbirth educators/professionals.

As a reminder, because postpartum doulas are not trained to be a medical professional and diagnose and treat medical conditions, a certification is not required for them to practice.

As their names suggest, a birth doula’s main priority is to provide support services before, during and in the moments immediately after childbirth. A postpartum doula’s obligations usually begin after the birth, for several weeks or months. In many cases, your birth doula will also be a trained and certified postpartum doula, which can provide a continuity of care that many parents find extremely valuable.

Many parents want to know whether a postpartum doula or a baby nurse would meet their needs and expectations. A baby nurse might be focused on making sure that a baby sleeps or feeds properly, but that might be the extent of their role. A postpartum doula generally offers more holistic services for their clients.

A postpartum doula in Winston-Salem, NC is expected to be more involved with the family as a whole. They might remain involved in sibling care or also provide emotional support to the partner as both parents adjust to becoming new parents. This may even include support for older siblings, light housework, and even meal prep. A postpartum doula provides more physical, emotional, and informational support than a baby nurse.

You can hire two types of doulas in Winston-Salem, NC: a birth doula and a postpartum doula. The birth doula is during your pregnancy and through the birth of your child. They provide you with emotional, physical and educational support during your pregnancy, your labor and delivery and for the first few hours after your child is born.

A postpartum doula will support you for the first few weeks after the baby is born. They provide in-home assistance, including teaching you how to take care of your newborn, acting as lactation consultant, and can provide some night nanny services.
