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
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.

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.

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.
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.

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.
So much of the night is a blur of waiting, intense moments, sleeping, and stress. It's difficult to call to mind specifics, but one thing I will never forget is Viji's presence, and how she was the rock in the room - the solid ground beneath both my wife and myself. The comfort and peace of mind Viji provided have earned her my trust, my respect, and my gratitude for life.

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.
