New HUGGS session to run through April 29 
Coping with grief and helping women heal from an unexpected miscarriage or infant loss. That is the mission of HUGGS, a program offered by the Baby Blossoms collaborative with support from the Douglas County Health Department. A seven-week spring session of HUGGS is seeking women in need of emotional support after the death of an infant or suffering a miscarriage. Sessions will be held on Tuesday nights from March 18 through April 29 at the Nebraska Children's Home Society. HUGGS evenings begin with dinner at 6 p.m. followed by a 90-minute support session starting at 6:30.

HUGGS, which stands for Healing Unresolved Grief Group Support, provides a comforting environment where women can share their experiences and provide support to each other, with an emphasis on women's wellness and preconception health. Those who only want to listen also are welcome. Anyone interested in attending HUGGS, or who knows someone who would benefit from HUGGS, is asked to call 444-7475 to register or for more information. New monthly topics and events are planned. HUGGS is offered free of charge as a service to the community. Do you know someone who needs HUGGS?
