Divine Journey Has Helped Mothers

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
What I find so special about Viji is her involvement in the process of lactation care, and how she opens herself to her clients. She is totally emotionally available and there to lean on. Not only does she support the mother but she supports the father or partner. She is the tree full of wisdom to lean into when you are scared or unsure. She makes you stronger, she helps to keep you comfortable and safe.
El Sobrante, CA
The placenta pills significantly helped with my energy level, milk production and baby blues. All things I had issues with after my first baby.
Los Gatos, CA
Her skills in Ayurveda, yoga and massage therapy were instrumental in my preparation for birth and throughout the labor process. Prior to the delivery of our son, she was always available to answer any of our questions or concerns. Viji was unconditionally supportive and very attentive to our individualized needs. She provided encouragement when we needed it and kind reassurance when we had any doubts.
San Francisco, CA
As the husband, it was very reassuring to have Viji around the entire time, since she was continuously guiding and comforting my wife through the (difficult!) process of birth. Our nurses were thoroughly impressed with Viji and said that she changed their opinions on doulas.
Viji was there with me through the ENTIRE process and answered all of my hundreds of questions and was the reason I was able to have a natural birth with my 9 lb 11 oz baby! I could not have done it without her! She is so knowledgable and advised me to an an awesome OB and hospital and the staff LOVED her during the labor which helped me to receive such attention and care.
My wife's labor was long, complicated and should have ended up in a C-section. Without Viji it surely would have gone that way.
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.
