Mayim Bialik Named Celebrity Spokesperson by the Holistic Moms Network
CBB readers already know that Mayim Bialik is committed to raising sons Miles, 3 ½, and Fred, 11 months, as holistically as possible, and now her dedication has been acknowledged by the Holistic Moms Network (HMN). A nationwide non-profit resource organization, HMN seeks to connect parents who are interested in holistic health and green living.
Mayim — who has been a member of HMN for several years — will now serve as its celebrity spokesperson, a role she relishes. “For those of us who parent against current trends, and for those of us who are parenting after educated, compassionate decisions, to do so without support can be disheartening, discouraging, and often leads to straying from our instincts,” she notes. “HMN provides the support and education that we historically have gotten from close-knit communities.” She adds,
“In HMN, I really found my people and it helped me gain confidence so that I did not feel defensive or ashamed to share my parenting choices when asked.”
The organization has more than 120 chapters throughout the United States, and advocates seven fundamental ideas for holistic parenting, including living simply and consuming less, making informed and educated parenting decisions, teaching children to respect and care about the natural world and limiting their exposure to advertising, marketing and a consumer-driven culture.
Each chapter meets at least once per month, where members connect and learn from one another; HMN members are also privy to email discussion groups and an e-newsletter. For more information on HMN or to learn how to join, click here.
