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

    “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.

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.

    in Spirituality

    Our broadcast honors, October 15, as “Worldwide Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day”. Marika Baris is the Founder and Executive Director of My Baby Angel Foundation, which was created out of the pain, shock, and grief she and her husband, Dr. Frederic Wiedemann, experienced in the pregnancy losses of TWO of their grandchildren.

The loss was devastating to them and their family.

    Losing a Child to a Congenital Heart Defect

    in Health

    Version:1.0 StartHTML:0000000200 EndHTML:0000003747 StartFragment:0000002470 EndFragment:0000003711 SourceURL:file://localhost/Volumes/USB%20DISK/H2Hw-Anna%20Series%201%20Program%20Schedule.doc “Losing a Child to a Congenital Heart Defect.” is an extremely emotional show, and it doesn’t have the happy outcome we’d love for all of our shows to have, but I believe it’s an extremely important topic and one that warrants our attention. To consciously decide not to talk about how many children we lose to CHDs would do a disservice to the thousands of innocent lives lost each year. During this show we honor not only the children we will talk about today with three loving mothers, but we also honor all children and adults who have died because of their congenital heart defects.
     
    While the United States death rate from congenital heart defects dropped 24% from 1999 to 2006 among children and adults, there are far too many people dying from congenital heart defects. Today we will talk with three mothers whose children died too soon. We’ll hear about mothers’ experiences with having a stillborn baby, a baby post-Norwood and an adult child who died long after it was thought she would.

    Handling Grief Together: How To Survive The Death of a Child

    in Women

    When a couple experiences the ultimate grief of the loss of a child, this can be the greatest challenge to a marriage. How do you deal with the loss of a child through sickness? How do you handle a loss through an act of violence? How do you survive a miscarriage or stillborn child? And if you have a loved one going through such a challenge, what kinds of things can you say that are helpful? What things are not helpful to say? How do you help someone through this period of grief? How do you help surviving siblings?

    What is wisdom?

    in Spirituality

    I will talk with Danielle Haik about her spiritual path and professional work. 


    "I am 31 yrs. old. I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan with my family. I grew up on the east side of Michigan in between Detroit & Ann Arbor. I came to west Michigan to go to Grand Valley State University. I was planning on majoring in Advertising & Public Relations, but then I found my mind and self expanding through my studies & life experiences. I had a sociology class with a professor that always made us write him a note at the end of our class. He was great & very zen. He showed us the documentary 'Killing Her Softly Vol. 2', about how women are portrayed in mass media & how violent crimes against women have been on the rise ever since. I decided to drop out of my program. 


    I consider myself a full-time student of life. I struggled with having an undefined major & not following the "normal" pathway, like my family had hoped for me. I feel like since I was young I knew that I was here for a purpose.


    I am a reiki master & I truly enjoy spiritually enriching myself. I have taken intutive development courses & have studied many different pathways of natural healing. I feel divinely connected to the universe & feel most at home when I am in nature. I have passion for ancient cultures such as egyptian & mayan civilizations. I have led meditation & healing gatherings. I am a doula apprentice & will be completing my experience with 2 births in January( including a homebirth, which I can't wait to experience!). I will also be leading a miscarriage & stillborn support group starting in January.


    I am a mother, wife, artist, healer, lover of mother Earth & mother nature, and an advocate for unity & peace....I am on my pathway to AUTHENTICITY....ever unfolding."
