Using Data to Inform Decisions in Early Parenthood with Economist Emily Oster
Jun 18, 2019Season 1Episode 3
Economist and Author Emily Oster
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.
