Meet the Support Group Leader(s)

Mirela

I'm 37 and I've been living with endometriosis for over two decades before it got diagnosed. 

Women should not have to endure for so long, nor live thinking the pain is normal, nor feel like an outcast for having it. 

I believe raising awareness and bringing women together in a safe space where they can feel accepted, and where they can share their stories and struggles, is of monumental importance for those who are impacted.

I've been volunteering with Endometriosis UK since January 2020, and have enjoyed getting to know everyone in the Edinburgh group. It's a safe and welcoming space for anyone suffering from endometriosis. 

My own diagnosis took around seven and a half years (bang on average!). Through the group I've met others with very similar stories, and have found it really useful to share tips and experiences. 

About the support group:

The aim of the Edinburgh group is to provide a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for women where they can discuss any aspect of this condition and feel informed, empowered and not alone. We welcome anyone who has or thinks they have endometriosis.

The regular group meetings are a mixture of informal and formal meetings with guest speakers. And we hope to be proactive in raising awareness of endometriosis and fundraising. 

If you are looking for support and information, then please get in touch and come along to the group meetings. We are a friendly bunch!

General Session Information:

We usually aim to meet at least once a month, on the 2nd Thursday of each month
