Reflect – Pregnancy Support

Reflect is a pregnancy support charity based in York and Harrogate. We provide free, impartial and confidential support to men and women facing an unexpected pregnancy choice and to those struggling after experiencing pregnancy loss, including miscarriage, still-birth and post-abortion. We can offer face to face advice and support at our venues in Acomb and Harrogate, or if this is not convenient, we can also arrange other appointment locations or provide help over the telephone or by email.

Why We Help:

  • 1 in 3 women will have an abortion in their lifetime
  • 1 in 4 early pregnancies end in miscarriage
  • 97% of abortions in 2013 were carried out solely to reduce the risk of harm to the well-being of the pregnant woman. However, the number of women seeking post-abortion support is rising.
  • Research shows a woman is best able to cope with an unintended pregnancy decision made free from pressure or fear. A woman (and her partner) are far more likely to cope with a decision that has not been rushed, knowing they have made a truly informed choice, even if it is difficult at the time.

We offer this time and space at Reflect, with non-judgemental support and information to help people make the decision best for them. We provide emotional and practical support whatever the outcome and aim to help all men and women access the services they need.

Rebecca’s Story

“When I contacted Reflect I literally felt like I couldn’t go on…I thought I had to be strong and ‘get on’ and not show my vulnerable side…I knew they would help me, being specialists in what they did, but I never expected such warmth, love, support and gentle encouragement…Without Reflect I hate to think where I would be now…The pain and heartbreak hasn’t gone away, but Reflect has helped me to see the sunshine through the clouds…I am forever and eternally thankful.”

Emily and Karl’s Story

“Losing two much wanted babies in quick succession last year left Karl and I feeling that our light had gone out and that only darkness lay ahead for us…I was a complete mess and unable to return to work, and Karl’s heart was breaking as nothing he could do or say would comfort me…We can safely say that the day we found Reflect was the day that changed our lives forever…We cannot emphasise enough the importance of the work that Reflect does, or how essential it is that they become more widely recognised so that other people in need can benefit from their incredible support. Their help has had a huge and everlasting impact on our lives.”

Smart Cells: Umbilical cord blood storage

Your baby’s umbilical cord is a valuable source of stem cells which can be collected and stored. These cells may be used as a crucial part of treating or curing an illness. Cord blood is the blood that remains in the placenta and umbilical cord after a baby is born, which are both usually thrown away after the birth. However, as this is a rich source of stem cells, it can be collected, processed and stored to be used later for potential treatment.

Based just outside London, Smart Cells are the UK’s first cord blood storage company. Collecting and storing cord blood from newborn babies has become more well-known over recent years, but many are still unaware of the fantastic opportunities it can give your child and their siblings throughout their lives.

More than 80 medical conditions, ranging from cerebral palsy to sickle cell disease and many more in between, can currently be treated using cord blood stem cells.

Smart Cells are currently leading the way in advances into stem cell research to identify more conditions and symptoms that can be treated using cord blood, with 20 stem cell samples released for clinical use since 2005 – this is more than any other private cord blood company in the UK.

Pregnancy and starting a family are full of special moments that you don’t want to miss. You only have one chance to store your baby’s cord blood. Contact Smart Cells to find out more.

Therapies – with Loraine Slater registered with CNHC click on to see the various videos

Virtual Gastric Band – / Weight Control, this is a 4 week programme.

The Virtual Gastric Band is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain you to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food. It changes how you think about food and gives very safe, very predictable results. The clinical hypnotherapy convinces the brain that the stomach is full after a certain level of intake and that there is no need for more food.It is most definitely NOT a diet – we know that diets only work in the short term. The Virtual Gastric Band allows you to eat what you want, but will enable you to intake smaller portions. And, because it’s not a diet, you won’t feel deprived, miserable or hungry, the issues which cause diets to fail. As The Virtual Gastric Band effectively negates these issues, you are left with a long-term solution to your weight problems.

In the UK, 1 in 4 people will experience a health problem at any one time, including in the workplace. Most of my clients take up my services where I carry out Counselling / Hypnotherapy where I work with the “Mind set” and teach you skills, tools to make a difference to your life .
