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 certain that without Viji's love and support during labor I would not have been able to do it. The birth experience that I desired was carried out successfully because of her. She did the placenta encapsulation, and brought them back the next day after being up with me all night. I honestly can't imagine having this experience without Viji and feel so lucky that she is a part of our lives.
I can't imagine delivery of our second daughter without Viji's support and care! This was my second pregnancy and I decided to go for a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After C-Section) Needless to say my first delivery was C section and I did not want go through surgery again!! My husband was supportive of my decision. We didn't even know the meaning of a Doula, but we heard such good reviews about her that even before we met her, we had decided to take her support! We instantly got connected during our first meeting....it really did feel like meeting a long lost friend. She has that charisma and warmth! After that I always looked forward to meet her. She constantly kept in touch via emails and she used to clarify all the questions I had (I usually had lot of questions :)) since it was only my husband with me during delivery...having her with us like a family member was such a relief for both me and my husband!! She was up all through the night with us encouraging and supporting. Thanks to her, it was a successful VBAC. I had some concerns with breastfeeding and Viji came immediately to help!

We were a VBAC case, and we were skeptical about whether natural birth would be possible the second time around, but she made it happen. Her combination of aromatherapy, positive attitude & various exercises and positions helped make a baby who was initially OP into OA, and to have him be delivered naturally in a stress-free manner against a lot of odds. She helped us do what the doctors told us wouldn't happen.

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.

Viji solved my postpartum breast engorgement and pain issues. She gets my highest recommendation. Her kindness and caring are matched by her knowledge and skill. Although I am a physician trained in western medicine, I absolutely recommend her services. Even if you are satisfied with your other care providers; she offers individualized and holistic care that can greatly benefit anyone.

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.
