Say hello to the Lovewell doula Collective!
Lovewell Birth Collective, formerly Well Rounded Doulas, began back in 2015, as a hearts dream of three doulas who dared to believe that Sarnia-Lambton would be ready and willing to honour them with their journeys through pregnancy, labour, and beyond.
This dream has become a reality, and along with the Sarnia-Lambton community, Lovewell has grown!
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.
Nicole, a dedicated life long learner, passionate reader and birth enthusiast, is a mother, an educator, and a labour and postpartum doula.

She embraces that knowledge is power and she wants every person to be in control of their own wellness through empowerment and information.
When not supporting and educating families, Nicole delights in spending time with her better half and their two adventurous daughters.
