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.

My Journey

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.

A Breakdown of the New Eve Method

It is made up of 5 steps:

This goes to the foundation of who the woman is; a creation who needs to be in unity with her Creator. This is often ignored by health & development strategies because it acknowledges religion. However, the reality is that everyone has some beliefs about how they came to be and this often influences how they view themselves and the world around them. When this step is skipped, all individual efforts rests in a vacuum. When women strive to connect to their Creator, particularly a personal God, they draw on a strength that informs their choices, actions and subsequently their circumstances. The New Eve Union encourages them to connect or re-connect with their God as the foundation of their personal development.
This is a standalone step but it also works hand in hand with the New Eve Union. It involves identifying beliefs about themselves & the world around them that do not serve them, but instead pose emotional and mental blocks that keep them from fulfilling their potential. It requires replacing these beliefs with strong positive messages and beliefs. Again, when this step is skipped, health & development practices struggle to take root for good results.
This step looks at dietary practices which varies from community to community. It involves working with members of each community to integrate healthy natural food choices into their customary diets. No health or development initiative is complete without healthy nutrition.
Every woman has both her daily and monthly rhythm; both of which are essential to her reproductive and overall health. Helping women to identify their unique rhythms and boosting them makes an immense difference to their heath, fertility and productivity.
No woman lives in a vacuum; she is influenced by their environment and she in turn influences her environment. This is often the focus of governments and NGOs because the relationship between women's environment and their health & development has become increasingly clear. But this focus is usually about making positive environmental changes to support women. While this is necessary, this New Eve step is about empowering women to identify their own unique circumstances and qualities so that they can make the changes they want to see. It is about leveraging their own potential and making them active participants in their own development rather than passive ones.
