About Me and My Mission
My name is Bridget Marie O. Alabi and I am on a mission to redefine femininity by going back to the very beginning. I believe that no feminist theory or actions done for and on the behalf of women is complete if it does not take the origin of woman into consideration. This means going back to beginning and looking at creation through the eyes of God who created woman (and man).
The more we understand the purpose and the intent for which God created woman in particular and the world in general, the better we can help women to fulfil their potential and take their rightful place in the world.
I have always been fascinated by health; in particular its social determinants and health inequalities. Why it is that some people are more vulnerable to disease than others. My earlier work examined the geographical variations and social determinants of diseases such as malaria and respiratory infections. It involved using geographic and spatial data to understand the connection between physical, socio-economic environments and health.
However, after an unexplained stillbirth, my attention was drawn to women health and fertility. I have investigated the health needs of women in different communities, developed population health profiles, made data driven recommendations for improving women’s health and actively promoted healthy behaviours for better health outcomes.
Alongside my research work, I also qualified as a holistic fertility therapist and worked directly with thousands of women over several years. This experience was very invaluable because it allowed me to understand first-hand the challenges, resilience and opportunities that women from different backgrounds face.
The New Eve Method
Through my work I discovered that having healthy families and successful careers require an approach that covers not just our bodies, but our emotions, minds, souls & environment. It requires achieving the natural harmony that we were created with from the very beginning. In particular, it requires truly understanding who the woman is, how she came to be and how she can be supported to achieve her full potential. This led to the development of The New Eve Method.
The New Eve Method is a natural human ecology model rooted in biblical theology that supports women through different socio-economic & environmental circumstances so that they can have the healthy families & successful careers that they were created to have. It builds on the premise that women (along with men) have been created to ‘be fruitful & multiply, fill the earth and subdue it’ (Gen 2:28). Women do not only have the potential to have health families and successful careers, they are needed to continuously transform the world. The New Eve Method can help to transform women into the best possible versions of themselves, so that they in turn can transform their world.
I have also realised that many women remain socially & economically disadvantaged despite herculean efforts by organisations, governments and even women themselves, because these efforts do not always embrace the full dynamic and intricate aspects of women’s being. All these aspects need to be brought into a space of actively empowering women to be the change they want to see. The New Eve Method provides that space and can empower women to be the best that they can be.
It does not dispense with social science research or economic or political efforts, rather it enhances them and makes them even more effective.
I have used this method to support women for several years through workshops and seminars. I have also written extensively on the subject.
