Every woman’s experience is different and uniquely hers so the Birmingham MWC Chapter was launched in 2017, to meet socially in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere to listen, encourage, support and empower fellow widows of all ages in Birmingham and the surrounding cities. It is easier to go through this new way of ‘life” called widowhood with woman who understand and have “been there”. We can listen to others testimonies and challenges and realize we are not “crazy” after all it is just part of the grief journey. We need to be able to talk to women that empathize with us instead of sympathize. We do not need anybody’s sympathy that is not why we are here. We are here because we are compassionate for others and want to empower them to get out and “live life again”! Widowhood is an overwhelming journey and we are here to laugh, cry and hold your hand through it all. Hope to see you soon!
