Where It

In 1970, Duchesnay started as a family-owned pharmaceutical company in Québec, Canada.

In the late 1980s, a family member experienced a difficult pregnancy, but was unable to obtain treatment due to a lack of information regarding the safe use of medications in pregnancy. Following this event, Duchesnay officially shifted its focus in 1992 toward developing medications that are safe for use during pregnancy, thus becoming the first pharmaceutical company dedicated to safeguarding the health of pregnant women and heir unborn babies.

How It’s

In 2011, Duchesnay expanded to the United States and established Duchesnay USA to provide American women with access to a safe and effective treatment option for nausea and vomiting of pregnancy (NVP), commonly referred to as morning sickness, when conservative management fails.

Today, our long-standing commitment to women’s health is stronger than ever, with a broader portfolio of products to offer therapeutic options that meet the health and quality of life needs of women at different stages of their lives.
