On Saturday, September 30th, we hosted our second edition of EndoSocial, London, and what a day it was! The event was a heart warming reminder that when people come together, magic happens.

Breaking the Ice with Le’Nise
Our day kicked off with a lively icebreaker activity led by the charismatic Le’Nise Brothers. Laughter and smiles filled the air as attendees got to know each other, setting the tone for a day of genuine connections and shared experiences.

Community Mixer and Insightful Q&A
Following the icebreaker, our community mixer provided the perfect opportunity for our guests to mingle and engage in meaningful conversations. It was heartening to see individuals from all walks of life connect over a common cause. The day continued with an insightful Q&A session that brought together people with questions and experts with answers. This open forum allowed attendees to gain a deeper understanding of endometriosis and sparked important conversations about this often-misunderstood condition.

One of the standout activities of the day was the mindfulness water colour painting session, with drawings provided by the incredibly talented Charlotte Boundy. Art has a unique way of expressing emotions and experiences, and out guests embraced this creative outlet with enthusiasm. The resulting artworks were not just beautiful but also served as a powerful means of self-expression and connection.
Ambassadors Sharing Their Journeys
A truly touching moment during the event was our specialist Q&A session, where we had the privilege of hearing from our dedicated Ambassadors and panellists, Natali Kelly and Georgia Attwood-Lawry. Both of them are passionate advocates for endometriosis awareness and shared their deeply personal journeys with the condition.

EndoSocial London also had the honour of hosting remarkable experts who generously shared their knowledge. Our gracious host, Lina Chan, founder of Holland and Barrett’s women’s wellness brand, Parla, Health Psychologist Dr. Sula Windgassen, Consultant Colorectal Dietitian Sophie Medlin, and Gynaecologist & Fertility Specialist Dr. Srividya Seshadri, provided invaluable insights into endometriosis.
Our guests had the chance to ask their most pressing questions, fostering an open dialogue that not only provided answers but also dismantled the stigma surrounding endometriosis.
A Haven for Connection
EndoSocial London was more than an event; it was a haven for heartfelt connections. It was a reminder that we are stronger when we come together, and it left attendees inspired and motivated to continue their journey with endometriosis.
We are immensely proud of our collaboration with Parla, and all our incredible ambassadors, who help create a secure space where meaningful connections are made, and pressing questions find their answers.
