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's support was so much more than just what a doula was--I think the world doula doesn't fully explain the level of holistic work that Viji does. She's not just someone there to educate you on the birth process and be there for it, she is someone who holds space for you as your friend and confidante on the journey of pregnancy and birth. The results were self-evident. I had SUCH a smooth pregnancy and my birth process was absolutely phenomenal. Despite being a first-time mom, I only pushed for 35 minutes before my precious baby was born. Viji was there as a positive coach through the entire experience.
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!

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.
San Carlos, CA
After a second bout with mastitis and a clogged milk duct that would not clear for several weeks, Viji made time to see me the next day and spent several hours working with me. She was able to make significant progress in clearing the duct. I felt much better after our appointment and could see the difference. In addition, she took the time to show me how I could massage the area after our appointment to continue clearing the duct. It has been several weeks and the mastitis has not returned. I would recommend Viji to anyone struggling with mastitis or a clogged duct.

Viji’s gifts are two fold. Not only does she have a divine gift of understanding the mother’s body and its needs during pregnancy but she also understands the baby’s needs. She can provide the safe space so you can experience what you need to, eliminate blockages and have a successful delivery. Her intuition is exceptional, her ability to understand your and the baby’s needs is remarkable and the results speak for themselves! I definitely refer to her as the baby whisperer.
The placenta pills significantly helped with my energy level, milk production and baby blues. All things I had issues with after my first baby.

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.
