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
My wife's labor was long, complicated and should have ended up in a C-section. Without Viji it surely would have gone that way.
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.
San Mateo, CA
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.
Palo Alto, CA
Viji has many wonderful talents, and her knowledge of Ayurveda is just one of them! I went through an Ayurvedic Consultation with Viji and it was such a great learning experience.
Mountain View, CA
Viji provided the emotional and physical support that I desperately needed during my labor. I never had to ask her for anything during my labor, she just knew what needed to be done.
San Jose, 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.

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.
