Economist and Author Emily Oster

June 18, 2019

Brown economist Emily Oster's new book, Cribsheet, is a thinking parent's guide to the chaos and frequent misinformation of the early years. A trained expert—and mom of two—Emily uses the science of decision-making to empower parents to make better, less fraught decisions—and stay sane in the years before preschool.

She talks to Nyssa about debunking myths and unpacking research around breastfeeding, postpartum depression, vaginal tearing...and the real reason new mothers are advised to have a six-week postpartum check-up.
