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
I am not sure where to start with Viji - she is such an incredible healer - filled with compassion, extensive knowledge and love. She is such a blessing to have during our more than difficult pregnancy and birth-Without her grounding love and support we would have truly been lost. She is the full package - my husband and I will for sure use her amazing services our next time around!
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
As the husband in this process, we sometimes feel helpless and directionless, however, Viji, was also great at guiding me and defining my role along the way. Viji provided us with the confidence and assurance to choose a natural birth process without any sedatives.
Redwood City, CA
The hospital medical personal was impressed with Viji’s abilities and knowledge of the non-medical alternatives that help and support a laboring woman. With massage and herbs Viji could do what Pitocin is used for in other cases. She can help you to avoid unnecessary medication to keep you and your baby healthy and enjoy the entire process.
Castro Valley, CA
She is an Ayurvedic practitioner and is able to complement the scientific aspect of her birth doula practice with time & culturally tested herbs, oils and & tinctures. Her oils were great for relaxation, pain relief and for speeding labor along.
Palo Alto, CA
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.
