Voices of Eve: Birth Ministries was born out of a love of the birth process and a desire to help those in need. I was called to Birth work when I was 13. Growing up as a missionary kid I remember hearing of women and babies dying in childbirth because of a simple lack of information. It filled me with a passion to help. I didn’t know what that ministry would be until I became pregnant with my daughter in 2013. I knew then that I wanted to make a difference in the birthing community. It wasn’t long after that I fell in love with the work of a doula. I connect most with the meaning of the original Greek word “Doula” which translates to, “woman who serves”. I feel strongly that women are a strength in our society, that babies are our future, and that when families are strong communities are strong. And when communities are strong our world is strong. My passion: in my ministry was born in the most unlikely of places. Sitting on an examination table being told I had lost my baby that I had yearned and prayed for.

No one should feel like their drowning in lifestyle changes. In this podcast we talk about the one thing that could change your life and remove stress! I stumbled across life changing information recently. I was actively building my health plan, Deciding what things in my life I wanted to shape me. And of course I wanted no shortage of healthy choices! I spent years being overwhelmed with diet crazes, essential oils, exercise programs, self-care, gym memberships, and more! Then I realized that I am in control and I didn’t like where I was leading my life.
