Review: EDGEBoston.com - August 8, 2006
“It’s a timely and illuminating book—the start of something larger, one hopes, and a good start at that.”
Review: Mothering Magazine - August 1, 2006
“These funny, poignant essays illuminate a virtually undiscussed topic while celebrating the joyful chaos of becoming a new parent.”
Review: The Advocate - July 18, 2006
“Reading through their moving and often funny musings on the new situations these babas have met and conquered, one can’t help thinking that once again lesbians are quietly doing what they’ve always done: blazing trails for everybody else.”
Review by: Jill Soloway, writer/co-executive producer of Six Feet Under - March 28, 2006
"Confessions of the Other Mother brings together hilarious, heart-wrenching, painfully honest tales of mommyhood. Not just for mothers or other mothers—but for anyone who has felt like an outsider at the playground. Funny, warm, sad, beautiful—and even sexy—the book is not only from the heart, but for the heart."
Review by: Christie Mellor, author of The Three-Martini Playdate - March 28, 2006
"The essays in Confessions of the Other Mother are alternately fascinating, insightful, hilarious, touching and goofy, and all a testament to what a universal thing it is to be a parent. I love the Babas and the Bobbies and the mommies and the mommas, they are all the sweetest and the strongest, as women and writers, and show us, in a very entertaining fashion, that we are all in the same boat."

"Given how many lesbians are conceiving children together, this collection of narratives by non-biological mothers will fill a much-needed place in the queer parenting canon."
