This is the perfect pregnancy book for the suppressed rebel in you. It is one of my all-time favorite books for moms. Expecting Better: Why the Conventional Pregnancy Wisdom Is Wrong–and What You Really Need to Know by Emily Oster.
I am a really big fan of the scientific approach to pregnancy and Emily’s background as an economist from the University of Chicago Booth makes her the perfect companion to review the literature for you.
Her work is highly recommended by Dr. Harvey Karp who also wrote one of the world’s leading texts on childbirth and child rearing.
Babyzone said, “Oster’s advice cuts through the emotion, myth, fear of malpractice litigation and looks at the numbers. A mother herself, Oster’s interest isn’t just curiosity, it’s the same thing that motivates every new mom… and Oster’s ability to break down the data into informed analysis is a refreshing break from the hysterical hearsay that often dominates the conversation.”
If that sounds like the fresh voice you’ve been waiting for, then head over to Amazon and get your copy of Expecting Better: Why the Conventional Pregnancy Wisdom Is Wrong–and What You Really Need to Know by Emily Oster.
