Ayurvedic Birth Services
Divine Journey empowers moms to give birth more confidently, happily and naturally by preparing them for birth and blending traditional Ayurvedic medicine techniques with childbirth education.
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
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.

If you are lucky like me you should reach out to Viji when you are trying to achieve pregnancy itself, so you can approach it with full awareness and confidence like I am able to do now. The whole experience will end up becoming spiritual, divine and much more meaningful while being joyous. I am so glad that I found her well before my pregnancy, what I took to Viji was a girl who was called infertile all her life and what Viji made of her is a mother.
I can’t imagine a better experience and would hire Viji a million times over again. She is a gifted doula and I consider myself very lucky to have met and worked with her.

Viji is the walking encyclopedia for births. Her knowledge of Ayurveda combined with her experience and passion for helping others sets her apart from everybody else. Viji is the kind of person who values your money and the level of service she provides is extraordinary. She gives a customized plan for every client based on their health issues and emotional state.
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.

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.

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 an Ayurvedic Doctor / 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.
