Mary-Frances Garber is a genetic counselor who provides Supportive Genetic Counseling, complementing what is traditionally offered in medical centers. Supportive Genetic Counseling is for women and their partners who have experienced pregnancy loss, stillbirth, pregnancies affected with abnormalities, or for individuals or families with the recent diagnosis
of a genetic condition.

“My focus is on the emotional responses patients and their partners may have following various obstetrical and genetic complications. Each person is unique in the way they respond to these issues. It is my goal to listen to you, help you cope with your emotional response and facilitate healing and moving forward with your life.”

Mary-Frances Garber is a board certified, licensed genetic counselor who earned her B.S. in Molecular Genetics from the University of Rochester and her M.S. in Human Genetics from Sarah Lawrence College. Having worked for 11 years in a high-risk obstetrical setting in the Antenatal Diagnostic Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, she gained extensive counseling experience. She has worked with many families having various genetic, chromosomal or developmental conditions. She is now in private practice focusing on patients with concerns surrounding compromised pregnancy outcomes, a recent diagnosis of a birth defect or genetic condition, and those in the process of obtaining a diagnosis for their child.

Mike and Joyce speak with Mary-Frances about her work.
