We had a great day at the Real Food Market in Harrogate. We were given space to be able to create awareness and tell people about the services that Reflect offers. We also added to the fun for the children with a lucky dip and lollipop tree! Thank you to the real Food Market for the opportunity.
We were very excited recently to be able to do a mini makeover on our counselling room. These lovely grey chairs, have already been put to good use! We are so grateful for the funding that helped us make our counselling room more comfortable and inviting.
We are delighted to have completed a our 4 month training programme for 10 new trainees! This training teaches our volunteers how to provide our structured support programme for Pregnancy or Baby Loss, and enables them to be able to take someone through this journey. Even with Covid restrictions we were able to provide this training through a combination of Zoom and in-person sessions. We are so grateful to our experienced trainers who were able to provide this training for us, so that more people are now equipped to be able to support and help those who come to Reflect. Thank you to all involved who gave so freely of their time!
We are very excited to let you know that we have been selected as a cause for the Co-op local community fund!!

From the moment your baby dies, your world changes forever. And there are no simple answers to grief; it is a journey to a new way of living, and how you look after yourself is different for everyone. Grief is a personal and unique emotion and so are the ways that people find to feel better.
You might want to talk or write about your experience. For some people, sharing your story can help make sense of your loss and celebrate your baby or babies. Or perhaps you simply want to hear about other people's experiences and know you are not alone.
There are lots of ways you might find comfort after the loss of a baby. Whether it be through music, writing, a hobby, objects, or being in a place where you feel closest to them. You may also find that being active or getting outdoors can make a big difference to both your physical and mental wellbeing.
This Baby Loss Awareness Week, we'd like you to join our conversations about what wellbeing means for you. Whether you're a mum, dad, partner, relative or friend, newly or longer-ago bereaved. We'd love for you to be a part of this important community.
Follow us on Instagram or Facebook to take part in this conversation.
