Hesitant about hiring a birth coach or not sure what to expect? Read the birth stories of moms we’ve worked with to learn about their experience with Divine Journey.
Divine Journey Has Helped Mothers
- Who had no idea what to expect, were afraid of pain, and/or had medical complications, to have short, successful vaginal births
- With painful and unwanted interventions during their first birth go on to achieve their goal of a natural, unmedicated birth, with few or no complications
- Stuck in labor for days troubleshoot what is going on and deliver within hours
- Heal themselves from conditions that were not addressed successfully by Western medicine
Here’s some food for thought:
Digestion is more than the food that we eat!
Working with pregnant women, this fact rings true even more than with the general population.
Your breath is the single most important thing in your life. Why? It keeps you alive! Our breath is the movement of air in and out of us – inhalation and exhalation.
Ok...the truth is….birth is normal!!! Yes, it hurts or can hurt like hell...but, can you do it? Absolutely! Is it safe? Yes, it's absolutely normal and women have been doing it since the beginning of time. What’s the point of this post? It’s to urge you, to support you, and to champion you to trust your gut.
What Past Clients Are Saying
Viji is a vey positive person and you get the vibe as soon as you meet her. Post-natal massages both were ultimate relaxing and rejuvenating. I instantly was able to get rid of negative thoughts due to work pressure and anxiety. Viji Has abundance of Ayurvedic knowledge and provides useful tips to allow self care instead of being dependent on her. Absolutely worth every minute and I keep looking forward for more relaxing moments with her.
I can't tell you how many compliments we received about Viji from all of the nurses, midwives, and Dr's at Kaiser, Redwood City. They kept coming up to me asking how I found my amazing Doula! Her dedication to Kristian and myself for three days was unbelievable. If you are looking for someone to support you, encourage you, and be there for you, you have found the right person!

The placenta pills significantly helped with my energy level, milk production and baby blues. All things I had issues with after my first baby.

So much of the night is a blur of waiting, intense moments, sleeping, and stress. It's difficult to call to mind specifics, but one thing I will never forget is Viji's presence, and how she was the rock in the room - the solid ground beneath both my wife and myself. The comfort and peace of mind Viji provided have earned her my trust, my respect, and my gratitude for life.
Mountain View, CA
We were a VBAC case, and we were skeptical about whether natural birth would be possible the second time around, but she made it happen. Her combination of aromatherapy, positive attitude & various exercises and positions helped make a baby who was initially OP into OA, and to have him be delivered naturally in a stress-free manner against a lot of odds. She helped us do what the doctors told us wouldn't happen.

Viji has a lovely, engaging, warm glow. It is contagious. She so attentively supported the laboring mom and from my point of view did what almost NO other doulas do— she was there to support EVERYONE! She has this amazing gift to pull everyone together to enjoy the moment and support the mom and one another.

A Creation of The Heart
Welcome to my greatest passion – helping and supporting mothers during their birth journey. After 15 years of working as a Research Scientist in Drug Discovery (Medicinal Chemistry) at Pfizer, Inc, I decided to embrace my deepest calling. I draw on my extensive knowledge and familiarity in health and medical sciences to bring human compassion to modern care.
As a Certified Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist, Certified Yoga Teacher and Certified Massage Therapist, I am committed to helping my clients understand themselves on a deeper level by using these ancient, time honored traditions that help us to live healthier, happier and more balanced lives.
When I help moms, I try to connect the dots that go unnoticed. The ones that tell a story of what could happen if not recognized and corrected.
My job is to help prevent anything negative from happening and to increase the chances of a positive and healthy pregnancy. By keeping an eagle eye on and staying on track with, simple and important practices during pregnancy, you can avoid many of the big problems that come your way. The best part is that you will never know whether you would have suffered from any of the serious ailments.
My work focuses on supporting you and your child through your pregnancy by helping you to create a very specific and supportive environment in your body. This environment helps your baby grow healthy, thrive and flourish. My aim is to give you and your baby the best possible foundation for life and health.
