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
Viji was there with me through the ENTIRE process and answered all of my hundreds of questions and was the reason I was able to have a natural birth with my 9 lb 11 oz baby! I could not have done it without her! She is so knowledgable and advised me to an an awesome OB and hospital and the staff LOVED her during the labor which helped me to receive such attention and care.
Not only is Viji intellectually gifted and well-read, but her experience in an array of modalities means she has a huge toolkit to draw from to support a woman through pregnancy, birth and post-partum. Not only did I rely on Viji for these skills- which she used to help me have exactly the birth I wanted, 100% natural - but her emotional intelligence and support were what got me through some challenging pregnancy moments.

Viji is a gifted and intuitive healer. She is more than a doula, she is your advocate and your support system. We were thrilled with our birth experience 2 years ago that she assisted us with, and the moment we knew we were expecting again, I contacted her to make sure she could be with us again!

The hospital medical personal was impressed with Viji’s abilities and knowledge of the non-medical alternatives that help and support a laboring woman. With massage and herbs Viji could do what Pitocin is used for in other cases. She can help you to avoid unnecessary medication to keep you and your baby healthy and enjoy the entire process.

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.
She provided excellent recommendations for diet, lifestyle, stress reduction, and preparing for labor. Every single recommendation she gave me worked miracles and got me through every obstacle I encountered. She makes sure you understand everything she says so easily, and has a way of reading her clients so quickly. She continues to be an inspiration to me because she pays such close attention to her clients needs and she makes you feel like you are family.
