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
- 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
We trusted Viji's judgment and thank goodness we did. Viji put me in a good laboring position and I was at 10cm in less than 2 hours after arriving to the hospital. The massage, counter pressure, essential oils, and Viji's calming presence made laboring manageable. I felt an urge to push and 20 minutes later our beautiful baby girl was born naturally with no intervention, no fear, and no pain.
After a second bout with mastitis and a clogged milk duct that would not clear for several weeks, Viji made time to see me the next day and spent several hours working with me. She was able to make significant progress in clearing the duct. I felt much better after our appointment and could see the difference. In addition, she took the time to show me how I could massage the area after our appointment to continue clearing the duct. It has been several weeks and the mastitis has not returned. I would recommend Viji to anyone struggling with mastitis or a clogged duct.

She provided excellent recommendations for diet, lifestyle, stress reduction, and preparing for labor. Every single recommendation she gave me worked miracles and got me through every obstacle I encountered. She makes sure you understand everything she says so easily, and has a way of reading her clients so quickly. She continues to be an inspiration to me because she pays such close attention to her clients needs and she makes you feel like you are family.
We are proud to say, without Viji, my wife may not have experienced her perfect birth story - pushing naturally for 4 hours and without any pain medication. While my wife performed like a super star, Viji was the coach behind it all! In Viji, not only did we hire the best Doula, we found a life time friend!
If you are like me, reading through all the reviews about Viji and also thinking that her services is expensive, you can stop right here! Only later did we know that we are getting more than what we paid for! We trusted Viji to the extent that we were not worried if any symptoms showed up because we knew Viji would take care of it! She goes out of her way to make sure her clients are comfortable. Her presence is felt when you are in the hospital. I was surprised to see how the nurses and doctors really listened to Viji when she gave recommendations. This is the kind of person you would need when you are laboring in the hospital. She took care of a lot of things that I would have overseen or just didn't know. We have made Viji a part of our family.
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.

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.
