I'm watching her on What Not to Wear and I LOVE her! It shows her babywearing, she talks about breastfeeding, and one of the shirts she is wearing she says "I think I may have given birth in it" which to me suggests, minimal intervention. She is so real and down to Earth. :

I've never really watched this show, but I saw a ring sling on a preview and so I turned it on. She actually went to prom in my dinky little home town with some guy who lived here and I guess people were not very nice to her! I want her to come back and be my best friend

Anyone else catch this?

Just saw it and although wasn't a big Blossom watcher or fan...I honestly felt like writing her fan letter just now...I love how she was babywearing and her little (well not so little) cutie was wearing baby legs...she seems very real!

Boy I want on that show...two babies in two years and I feel just like Mayim said she did...although her body looked great.

Oh i caught it! I saw the end of the first airing tonight and thought, that totally looks like Blossom! I saw the second showing from the beginning and saw it was her and the more i watched the more i was thinking, she has GOT to be a MDC mama. I thought her clothes were really cute before, most of it anyway.

I enjoy learning more about her and seeing that she was a NL/AP mama!!

That little baby wearing the babylegs was a home waterbirth.

I was tickled to see her too. And tickled to see that Stacy and Clinton didn't give her a hard time about wearing her baby. In fact I think Clinton said the baby was the best kind of accessory :

I'd love to go through the WNTW process, but not have it televised

I missed her episode of WNTW, but I caught her on Chelsea Lately. I love how she stands by her religious beliefs. She talked about keeping a Kosher house and only wearing skirts.

I don't do those things but I thought it was great that she goes against the norm in Hollywood.

I just finished watching it! : I also want to give kuddos to Stacy. When Mayim commented that the first shirt on the mannequin was difficult to nurse in, Stacy pulled the whole neck line down to show how stretchy and easy it was. I thought that was really cool.
I have to wonder how irritated poor Mayim gets being called "Blossom" still.

I'm watching the end of it now and what the heck? I would have totally been like "you know my name isn't really Blossom, right?"

I was really surprised that they made no digs on her nursing or wearing the babe. I kept thinking how much I wish I knew her because she seemed so real.

I just watched it off the DVR and knew there'd be a thread here! I : it! She really does seem like she oughta be an MDC mama!

I have always loved What not to Wear, and to see such a great AP, intelligent, down-to-earth, homebirthing, breastfeeding mama on it is just SO cool. : I loved that they acknowledged her need to breastfeed and wear her baby and that it was important that her wardrobe fit with her lifestyle.

And I'm so very tickled and impressed that she got her Ph.D. in Neuroscience! I dream of going back to school (and would study a little neuroscience in my course of work), and am absolutely thrilled to see mamas make it work.

Anyway, I kinda hope she DOES know MDC, though I don't know that I'd flag myself as being a well-known person here, even if I were reading. I definitely think she'd fit in.

I saw it today and it was so great. She didn't change totally, still looks like herself and she was so wonderful about saying I will pay for this myself give the money to someone who really needs it....not many celebs that would have done THAT! Her baby is adorable and I love how natural and down to earth she seems...BlueIrises I too wanted to write her a letter!

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all

I'm so glad someone posted about it! I wonder if it'll end up online? I called my mom to watch it for me since we don't have cable, but she was outside in her garden! Anyone know when it'll repeat? I might have to go for a visit

YAY!!!! Though I'm so glad she really is "crunchy" and w00t for the waterbirth. I was a totally devoted blossom fan:-x I loved Joey and wanted to name my kid Six back in middle school:-/ lol:

I saw her on Chelsea Lately talking about WNTW, and she's awesome!!! She also talked about keeping kosher and dressing modestly--so interesting to hear her POV They had photos of her slinging her baby--adorable and great to see getting publicity!

I have retired from administration work, so if you have a question about anything MDC-related, please contact Cynthia Mosher. Thanks!

I was watching this with DH and kept pointing out all the AP things. I said, "I wonder if there will be a thread on MDC..." You guys are awesome.

That was my favorite part of the show, too! I loved watching her--she seems like a thoughtful, intelligent woman with strong convictions. But lots of fun, as well!

Yeah, I saw this also. Mayim is now officially my new girl crush!! :

I don't watch WNTW a lot, but I saw her on previews and tivo'd it.

Things I loved-
-Stacy pulling the collar of the shirt down and how they were cool with that
-How it really wasn't all about the clothes, but as so many of us mamas on here know- we need to think about ourselves also. That can be hard when practicing AP/NL parenting.
-that she talked about her PhD. I am now renewing that goal in my life!

Hey- Mama Mayim- If you're out there- WE LOVE YOU!! (and not because of "Blossom")
