Reflect is a free support service in North Yorkshire for anyone facing a Pregnancy Choice and for those struggling after experiencing Pregnancy Loss. We offer free one to one support for individuals or couples either face to face or via skype or telephone.
An unintended pregnancy can be a crisis for anyone whatever your circumstance. Facing this can be a difficult and confusing experience. At Reflect you can talk to a trained volunteer who will listen, offer you space to think and help you consider all your options.
Sadly, 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage and 1 in 250 end in stillbirth. At Reflect we offer a structured support programme for those experiencing a Pregnancy Loss of any kind including miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or termination of pregnancy. We offer a safe, compassionate environment where we work through a support programme called “Reflections: Walking through loss”.

York Sands are a voluntary group of mums and dads whose baby or babies have died. We offer emotional support to anyone who has lost a baby or babies during pregnancy, at birth or shortly afterwards. Although every experience is different we understand how devastating the death of a baby can be.
Whether your baby has died recently or some time ago, the effects of grief can be overwhelming leaving you with feelings of shock, disorientation, isolation and exhaustion.
It can be hard to take in information, to make decisions or to imagine how you are going to cope. Therefore, whenever your baby died we are here to offer support, understanding, comfort and a listening ear.
We also offer information, advice and support to family, friends, health professionals or anyone who has been affected by the death of a baby.
