(Caldwell, NJ) – Actress Mayim Bialik is proud to be a holistic mom. Best known for her lead role as Blossom Russo in the early 1990’s NBC sitcom “Blossom” and for capturing hearts playing the young Bette Midler in “Beaches”, Mayim has been named celebrity spokesperson for the non-profit support and resource organization the Holistic Moms Network.
Health-conscious and green mom to two small children, Mayim Bialik has been a member of the Holistic Moms Network for several years. “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 instinct,” explains Mayim. “HMN provides the support and education that we historically have gotten from close-knit communities.”
As a parent interested in natural childbirth, holistic medicine, non-toxic living, and organic food choices, among others, Mayim “found her tribe” with the Holistic Moms Network. “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.”
“Mayim is a true holistic mom,” says Executive Director Nancy Massotto. “Like so many of our moms, she is striving to find holistic options for her family to live healthier and greener. She is smart, savvy, and looking for both the information and support that the Holistic Moms Network can offer.” The Holistic Moms Network, founded in 2003, welcomes a diverse membership of parents who are interested in holistic health and green living. With more than 120 Chapters across North America, the organization is a voice for natural living and parenting.
As a spokesperson for the organization, Mayim Bialik will be sharing her knowledge and experience about holistic parenting with other parents and will be part of a national advertising campaign on behalf of the Holistic Moms Network.
