Mimi Hecht is a stark contrast to the by-the-books, food pureeing, self-sacrificing supermom that many women feel pressured to live up to. Her articles like "The 10 Untruths about Motherhood" and "My Mama Manual" offer women an honest and humorous take on both the joys and hardships in trying to stay sane, stylish and spiritual in Motherland. Through her candor in addressing things like infertility, the high price of groceries or her mind-battle over circumcising her son, Mimi strives to inspire confidence in women and teach new moms to march to the beat of their own drum. To share her thoughts and celebrate all kinds of mothers, she started LadyMama.org, a growing online community of modern-day Jewish women. Mimi is a proud, full-time mom and spends any other time she can researching/writing/editing for LadyMama, Googling recipes (she doesn't own one single cookbook), searching for interesting finds on Craigslist and plotting her way back to buried hobbies like photography, painting and, um, exercising. Mimi is also a "Social Media Maven," hired by people to boost their services and products via Facebook, Twitter and blogging. She lives with her husband Moshe and their son Shney in Brooklyn, where they count their many blessings but dream of greener (and larger) pastures to raise their future family of who-knows-how-many kids.
