- Heal themselves from conditions that were not addressed successfully by Western medicine
- Struggling with breastfeeding and support their babies to feed comfortably and effectively
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
Viji was incredible through our entire process. From preparing us with everything we needed to know ahead of time - which included working with our very unique schedules and coordinating virtual meetings from multiple time zones across the pacific - to being a rock at the hospital during a complicated and challenging labor and birth. We couldn't have done it without Viji and we are forever grateful for her knowledge and guidance during such a special time in our lives. She continues to be a wealth of information in the weeks and months after the birth of our child and we couldn't be happier with our choice to employ her services.

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.

Beyond her caring and nurturing nature, Viji has a gift for Ayurvedic massage and treatment, as well as a strong intuition to provide support exactly where you need it most. She gave the most amazing massage, which not only helped induce labor, but more importantly helped me relax and let go of many of my concerns regarding the birth.

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.
We began our pregnancy associating the labor room to that of a battle field, but in the end it turned out to be the altar where our family happily welcomed our little divine blessing.

Not only is Viji intellectually gifted and well-read, but her experience in an array of modalities means she has a huge toolkit to draw from to support a woman through pregnancy, birth and post-partum. Not only did I rely on Viji for these skills- which she used to help me have exactly the birth I wanted, 100% natural - but her emotional intelligence and support were what got me through some challenging pregnancy moments.
