"As an outspoken advocate for childbirth choices, I have worked tirelessly to educate parents about their birthing options. With Beyond the Sling, Mayim Bialik has developed a fantastic guide to birth and parenting that is packed with invaluable wisdom. At once conversational, informative and progressive, this book should be compulsory reading for anyone who has even considered becoming a parent."
-- Ricki Lake, executive producer of The Business of Being Born and author of Your Best Birth
"Beyond the Sling goes beyond the scope of the standard books to enhance the parenting experience. Mayim's warmth, dedication, and professionalism are felt throughout this wonderful book."
--Lauren Feder, M.D. author of Natural Baby and Childcare and The Parents’ Concise Guide to Childhood Vaccinations
“Beyond the Sling offers insight into attachment parenting…quite palatable for even the most detached parent. Bottom line: this book will further endear you to Mayim’s genuine likeability and make you respect the tenacity of parents who subscribe to the sling-- even if you opt not to wear one.” --Orange County Register
