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 is not only knowledgeable but also has an innate gift for sensing the unconscious fears and needs of the client that may be blocking the labor and birthing process. I was over a week overdue when Viji performed her prenatal massage for me that helped to uncover emotional and mental blocks facilitating me to go into labor within a couple of days.
San Jose, CA
It was important that our doula not be dogmatic about any childbirth approach and Viji always provided insight into why doctors do what they do, clearly described alternatives, but always left the choice to us and supported us in those choices.
Palo Alto, CA
As the husband, it was very reassuring to have Viji around the entire time, since she was continuously guiding and comforting my wife through the (difficult!) process of birth. Our nurses were thoroughly impressed with Viji and said that she changed their opinions on doulas.
As a soon-to-be father, there was a whole lot I had never learned about pregnancy, labor, and the first weeks of having a new baby. To any men who are wondering whether or not hiring a doula is a good idea, I can honestly say YES, call Viji, you will not regret it, and YES, I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Boulder Creek, CA
Her knowledge on Ayurveda, essential oil, Reiki is incredible. She is a pain management queen. There cannot be a better experience and would hire Viji a zillion times over again. She is a gifted person and I consider myself very lucky to have met her.
San Jose, CA
Getting Viji as a doula was one of the best decisions we made regarding the birth of our child. Her dedication is incredible and she goes well beyond the call of duty to take care of my wife. Viji doesn't treat her work as a business contract and behaves like a friend and guide. My wife was able to go through her labor without any epidural or painkillers mainly because of Viji's coaching and massaging.
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.
