Karine Deschênes - Montreal and et Lanaudière

Mother of four children, mother-in-law of four others and grandmother-in-law of three grandchildren, family is at the heart of her life! It is always a great privilege for her to assist you in your choices for the birth and to support you day and night during the waking hours.

Understanding the necessity and importance of postnatal support, she has developed several tools to help you (rebozo, ayurveda, naturopathy, herbalist).

Karine offers nightly respite throughout the Greater Montreal area and birth doula services in the Lanaudière region, being from Shawinigan!

She is bilingual and has a great experience with babies and parents alike.
