Episode 297: Covid-19 from a Pediatrician’s Perspective with Dr. Mary Wilde

My guest today is Dr. Mary Wilde. Dr. Mary Wilde is a board-certified pediatrician and owner of Imagine Pediatrics Behavioral Health and Wellness in St. George, UT. She has special training in mind-body medicine and takes a whole child, integrative approach to help children and adolescents build skills of self-regulation and coping through guided imagery and focused practice. She has developed the “Overcoming Childhood Anxiety” online courses, which teach mind, body, and spirit strategies to kids and families dealing with anxiety. Dr. Wilde is the mother of 8 children and the author of several books, including “Faithful Nurturing: Mothering from the Heart to the Heart.” Today we are talking about what we need to know about the Coronavirus, how she is helping her family stay healthy, and how to help your kids through this unprecedented time.
