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

- 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
My husband and I really don't know how people go through the labor process without a doula, let alone someone like Viji to support you through the process. This was our second time working with Viji. We have a hunch that she JUST might be an angel. We wouldn't doubt it.
Menlo Park, CA
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
As a soon-to-be father, there was a whole lot I had never learned about pregnancy, labor, and the first weeks of having a new baby. To any men who are wondering whether or not hiring a doula is a good idea, I can honestly say YES, call Viji, you will not regret it, and YES, I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Boulder Creek, CA
Viji has many wonderful talents, and her knowledge of Ayurveda is just one of them! I went through an Ayurvedic Consultation with Viji and it was such a great learning experience.
Mountain View, CA
Viji was very successfully able to work her magic with me - it was truly amazing that I went into labor 6 hours after the 2nd massage when prior to that I had not even been having any contractions at all, was not dilated, and the baby was still pretty high up.
Palo Alto, 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.
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.
