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.
We are proud to say, without Viji, my wife may not have experienced her perfect birth story - pushing naturally for 4 hours and without any pain medication. While my wife performed like a super star, Viji was the coach behind it all! In Viji, not only did we hire the best Doula, we found a life time friend!
I can't tell you how many compliments we received about Viji from all of the nurses, midwives, and Dr's at Kaiser, Redwood City. They kept coming up to me asking how I found my amazing Doula! Her dedication to Kristian and myself for three days was unbelievable. If you are looking for someone to support you, encourage you, and be there for you, you have found the right person!

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.

She stayed all night, massaging me, helping with various positions to keep the labor going and shielding me from nurses who thought my pain tolerance was too low to go without an epidural. She also had many nice-smelling essential oils in the room, which everyone appreciated. I had an epidural-free birth with minimal tears and I am absolutely certain I could not have done this without Viji.

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.

Welcome to my greatest passion – helping and supporting mothers during their birth journey.

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.

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.
