Graines de Vie

What is it?

Graines de Vie is an association created by a small group of women involved in perinatal care and interested in making the first steps towards a social transition based on the theme of the family in its broadest sense. Our professional and personal experiences have brought us together around a common dream and a need that we all felt when we became mothers: to be much better accompanied, supported and informed in the field of parenthood.

Our values


Positive parenting

You’re not born a parent, you become one, and we promote activities that foster caring parenthood. These extend to the phases of becoming parents, being parents, being grandparents and so on.

Physiological mothering

We promote and encourage physiology in areas related to motherhood: birth, breastfeeding, post-partum, babywearing, co-sleeping, etc.

Feminine and masculine

We promote the discovery of the particularities of each gender and encourage the celebration of our bodies as women or men in union with the living.


Respect for people

Each being is unique and has its place within the community. We encourage the development of the self and its potential in the sense of this uniqueness, while respecting the rhythm of each individual.


Respect for nature

The earth bears us and nourishes us abundantly. We promote responsible, sustainable, organic and local consumption, as close as possible to zero waste.


The circular economy

We support a local economy, promote networking and bring together social/professional players to share and create collaborative, rather than competitive, synergies.
