Hesitant about hiring a birth coach or not sure what to expect? Read the birth stories of moms we’ve worked with to learn about their experience with Divine Journey.
Divine Journey Has Helped Mothers
- Who had no idea what to expect, were afraid of pain, and/or had medical complications, to have short, successful vaginal births
- With painful and unwanted interventions during their first birth go on to achieve their goal of a natural, unmedicated birth, with few or no complications
- Stuck in labor for days troubleshoot what is going on and deliver within hours
- Heal themselves from conditions that were not addressed successfully by Western medicine
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
We trusted Viji's judgment and thank goodness we did. Viji put me in a good laboring position and I was at 10cm in less than 2 hours after arriving to the hospital. The massage, counter pressure, essential oils, and Viji's calming presence made laboring manageable. I felt an urge to push and 20 minutes later our beautiful baby girl was born naturally with no intervention, no fear, and no pain.
Viji was very successfully able to work her magic with me - it was truly amazing that I went into labor 6 hours after the 2nd massage when prior to that I had not even been having any contractions at all, was not dilated, and the baby was still pretty high up.

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.

Viji is a gifted and intuitive healer. She is more than a doula, she is your advocate and your support system. We were thrilled with our birth experience 2 years ago that she assisted us with, and the moment we knew we were expecting again, I contacted her to make sure she could be with us again!

I absolutely recommend Viji for placenta encapsulation. This is my second pregnancy and it totally made a difference in recovery, milk production and hormone balance. Viji is very experienced, warm and knowledgeable in this specialty. I received the pills within 24 hours and milk came the day after with amounts for two babies. I felt energetic and positive, which was totally different from my first pregnancy experience.
Viji has helped me more than I could have imagined. She is more than a birth coach, she is my life coach.
A Creation of The Heart
Welcome to my greatest passion – helping and supporting mothers during their birth journey. After 15 years of working as a Research Scientist in Drug Discovery (Medicinal Chemistry) at Pfizer, Inc, I decided to embrace my deepest calling. I draw on my extensive knowledge and familiarity in health and medical sciences to bring human compassion to modern care.
As a Certified Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist, Certified Yoga Teacher and Certified Massage Therapist, I am committed to helping my clients understand themselves on a deeper level by using these ancient, time honored traditions that help us to live healthier, happier and more balanced lives.
When I help moms, I try to connect the dots that go unnoticed. The ones that tell a story of what could happen if not recognized and corrected.
My job is to help prevent anything negative from happening and to increase the chances of a positive and healthy pregnancy. By keeping an eagle eye on and staying on track with, simple and important practices during pregnancy, you can avoid many of the big problems that come your way. The best part is that you will never know whether you would have suffered from any of the serious ailments.
My work focuses on supporting you and your child through your pregnancy by helping you to create a very specific and supportive environment in your body. This environment helps your baby grow healthy, thrive and flourish. My aim is to give you and your baby the best possible foundation for life and health.
