the lovewell partners

Nicole Newman

Nicole, a dedicated life long learner and birth enthusiast, is a mother, a child birth educator, and a labour and postpartum doula.


Nicole is devoted to supporting folks with knowledge about birth and parenthood. At the centre of Nicole's work is the belief that people should have access to sound information about pregnancy and postpartum health. She embraces that knowledge is power and she wants every person to permit themselves the freedom to be in control of their own wellness through thoughtful discussion and information.


When not supporting and educating families, Nicole delights in spending time with her better half and their two adventurous daughters. She also really enjoys writing about herself in the third person.

Stephany Borthwick

Stephany is a mother of two beautiful girls, a nurturer and a lover of all things birth. Throughout her postpartum journey as a young mom, she felt the impact and importance of having a positive support system. From there, Stephany discovered that she wanted nothing more than to be that vessel of support and knowledge for all pregnant and labouring humans. She followed her heart-driven passion to the path of a birth and postpartum Doula so that she could help individuals and their families be aware of their options, feel empowered and confident in their decisions.


Aside from her work as a Doula, Stephany can be found loving up on her supportive husband; Marshal, gently parenting her two little moons; Bella and Penelope, indulging in vegan food, and encapsulating placentas.

Carlie Pitka

Born and raised in Sarnia, ON, Carlie has always had a special interest in pregnancy, birth, and newborns. She graduated from Lambton College's two-year Advanced Massage Therapy Program in class of 2011. Having the opportunity to attend a cousin's birth, her massage skills came in handy. She started putting more effort into promoting prenatal and labour massage, and after a couple birth experiences she quickly realized this was her "sweet spot."


Carlie quickly discovered becoming a Doula was the perfect fit; her doula journey began early 2015. She is a Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula through Doula Training Canada.


 Aside from her Doula and RMT work, Carlie loves to travel, spend quality time with friends, and enjoys soccer, volleyball, and boardgames. She enjoys the everyday life alongside her husband; Josh, and three daughters.

Laura Batista

Laura is a professional graphic designer, an entrepreneur, and a mother. She is a minimalist and loves all things natural, simple and pure.


She believes that you truly only need a few essentials to take care of a baby. And with that thought in mind, she carefully curates the collection of products that you can find in our wellness shop. 

With her children she practiced natural parenting techniques such as baby-wearing, and exclusively breastfeeding all 3 into toddlerhood. She also experienced two home-births and loves to share with other moms about those experiences.


Aside from her work at Lovewell, Laura is passionate about leading small mission projects in Cuba (where her husband is from), going on nature hikes with her family, eating sushi and listening to Spanish praise & worship music.
