Life Review Group for Women: Lived Experiences of Single & Childless women

6 Weeks: July 13, 20, 27, Aug 3, 10, 17, 2017
Thursdays: 6pm - 9pm

The single and childless women life review group is designed for single and childless women aged 35-45 who desire to be married with children. Within the context of this group, “single” refers to those who have never been married, and “childless” refers to those who desire to have children, as opposed to those who choose to not have children. The purpose of the group is to offer an open and non-judgmental space for women to share their lived experiences and to connect women who might be experiencing similar thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Single and childless women over the age of 35 constitute an expanding demographic in North America and in many parts of the world. By addressing the needs of this population, it is our hope to celebrate the identity of modern women, and empower them to live lives of happiness, fulfillment, and meaning.
