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 was there with me through the ENTIRE process and answered all of my hundreds of questions and was the reason I was able to have a natural birth with my 9 lb 11 oz baby! I could not have done it without her! She is so knowledgable and advised me to an an awesome OB and hospital and the staff LOVED her during the labor which helped me to receive such attention and care.
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.
Getting Viji as a doula was one of the best decisions we made regarding the birth of our child. Her dedication is incredible and she goes well beyond the call of duty to take care of my wife. Viji doesn't treat her work as a business contract and behaves like a friend and guide. My wife was able to go through her labor without any epidural or painkillers mainly because of Viji's coaching and massaging.
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.

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.
I firmly believe that Viji was critical to my success in having the natural labor I wanted. She came to our home at exactly the right time and was right there helping me through the toughest moments.
