I know! There are so many different words added before the word labor. Yup! These words are used to describe the different phases of this oftentimes confusing and usually long process!
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.
What Past Clients Are Saying
Her skills in Ayurveda, yoga and massage therapy were instrumental in my preparation for birth and throughout the labor process. Prior to the delivery of our son, she was always available to answer any of our questions or concerns. Viji was unconditionally supportive and very attentive to our individualized needs. She provided encouragement when we needed it and kind reassurance when we had any doubts.

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 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.
Viji is very intuitive and helped me address many fears that I faced with this second pregnancy. She provided a detailed ayurvedic analysis and breathing exercises which I found extremely helpful. When I got to the hospital, she stayed with us for more than 24 hours straight to help us with all the decisions during the labor and was such a champion for us. She presented all the information in an easy manner to help us make the right decision considering my labor was induced. Her oil massages during the labor process was such a relief and her talks during the labor process helped me face the decisions with confidence. I like her intuitive approach and believe it helped me connect with her very easily. She helped me deliver my beautiful baby.
Menlo Park, CA
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.
