I know! There are so many different words added before the word labor. Yup! These words are used to describe the different phases of this oftentimes confusing and usually long process!
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.
What Past Clients Are Saying
Viji’s gifts are two fold. Not only does she have a divine gift of understanding the mother’s body and its needs during pregnancy but she also understands the baby’s needs. She can provide the safe space so you can experience what you need to, eliminate blockages and have a successful delivery. Her intuition is exceptional, her ability to understand your and the baby’s needs is remarkable and the results speak for themselves! I definitely refer to her as the baby whisperer.
She stayed all night, massaging me, helping with various positions to keep the labor going and shielding me from nurses who thought my pain tolerance was too low to go without an epidural. She also had many nice-smelling essential oils in the room, which everyone appreciated. I had an epidural-free birth with minimal tears and I am absolutely certain I could not have done this without Viji.

If you are lucky like me you should reach out to Viji when you are trying to achieve pregnancy itself, so you can approach it with full awareness and confidence like I am able to do now. The whole experience will end up becoming spiritual, divine and much more meaningful while being joyous. I am so glad that I found her well before my pregnancy, what I took to Viji was a girl who was called infertile all her life and what Viji made of her is a mother.
During labor, Viji was the ultimate whole body-mind-community birth companion. She was so helpful to us and to the medical staff, the perfect complement to the team, guiding us with next steps as labor intensified, minimizing pain, cheerleading during contractions & during pushing, etc.

I didn't plan to include a doula for my pregnancy/birth or budget, but Viji ended up being a priceless and wonderful decision. There are a people in your life that you have easiness with, impressively make choices about heart not monetary and have intuition and smarts.....well, Viji is all of these as well adorable and amazing for many reasons, those are just my experiences with her.
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.
