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

- Stuck in labor for days troubleshoot what is going on and deliver within hours

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
When I experienced pelvic pain about 6.5 months in, one bodywork session with Viji cleared up the pain for the rest of my pregnancy.
Palo Alto, CA
No amount of words can describe how important Viji was during my pregnancy and postpartum. She is highly intuitive! Her main focus was to ensure that I was happy, physically and emotionally, and healthy throughout my pregnancy. If I didn't check in with her regularly, she was sure to reach out. She was more like a life coach for us during my pregnancy. It not only made me emotionally stronger for my labor but also helped me to rediscover myself. She taught me how to process & express my suppressed emotions. She went above and beyond for me by sacrificing a lot of her own personal time to help me to realize my strength. She just wanted us to have the best childbirth experience possible which we did.
Viji provided the emotional and physical support that I desperately needed during my labor. I never had to ask her for anything during my labor, she just knew what needed to be done.
San Jose, 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
Her knowledge on Ayurveda, essential oil, Reiki is incredible. She is a pain management queen. There cannot be a better experience and would hire Viji a zillion times over again. She is a gifted person and I consider myself very lucky to have met her.
San Jose, CA
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.

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.

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.
