“Empowering birth resources for everyone.”
Birth of My Ministry:
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. 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 when families are strong communities are strong. And when communities are strong our world is strong.
My passion 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. That pain turned into a fire and his been a guiding light in my work to advocate, educate, and support families of all kids.
Hebrews 10:24-25a “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another…”
My mission as a doula educator, and activist is to help families embrace an abundant life. I give these families my time, my hands, my knowledge, my passion, and my heart. I believe in my work and I believe in its ability to make a difference. I also believe in my clients. I believe that through their unique journeys they can come out stronger and closer to each other than before. Building strong families to build strong communities.
I believe in midwives, birth workers, medical staff, birthing centers, and hospitals. I believe that together we can do anything to help our clients. Working hand in hand with these amazing people we can accomplish so much.
I decided in July of 2018 to accept the call into being a doula as a ministry as well as a career. And because of that my services are income based. My hope is that no family has to choose to not have a doula or other important services like Childbirth education or breastfeeding education because they can’t afford it. I hope to travel to other states and countries to minister to mother’s, babies, and families.
When you utilize my services, follow me on social media, donate or more you are a vital part of that ministry. In fact my ministry could not function without you!
Colossians 3:14 “And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”
Let’s journey together and watch the world change.

Why is Your donation needed?
Voices of Eve is a growing ministry. The unfortunate part about running a ministry in its early stages is there isn’t much financial room for advertising. That makes it hard for low income families to hear about the income based services for them.
I believe that being low income shouldn’t keep you from services that are life saving, life Improving, bring you closer to God, or are empowering. And your support helps me provide as much support as I can. I don’t want to limit what they deserve as beautiful human beings that are made in God’s image because they have less funds.
Being ministry based doesn’t pay well, which is fine! I am not in this to get rich. But it is hard when I want to serve as many families as I can but getting the word out to the families who need is often difficult.
In 2019 I, the owner and sole operator of Voices of Eve: Birth Ministries, Abbey Barnosky made $4,325.50 and my average income since starting my ministry in 2016 is $4,362.36
This means that providing all the needs for my family is difficult. Tough choices are made daily to keep my ministry running.
And I am not quitting! I have worked tirelessly finding work on the side like house cleaning, babysitting, organizing, photography work, crafting, and more to make sure that my family is cared for and so are my low income families. The difficult part about constantly searching and working in side hustles is they take away from precious time serving in my ministry and serving my own family.
I have had to do without sometimes. And I don’t say that to brag! Because I have done with more than I need more often than I should. But I am working on improving myself to be the servant my families and my community deserves.
If you feel called to join me in my ministry or to donate please do so! I also hope you will do so in a way that I can truly and deeply thank you! I couldn’t do all I do without support from you!
