Brown Economist and author Emily Oster 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.
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.
