This episode is for you if you’re looking for some data-driven answers about the many decisions made during pregnancy and parenthood. There’s so much information out there about what you should or shouldn’t do during pregnancy, delivery, and those early parenting years that it can be really challenging to determine what is right for you and your family and what is fact versus fiction. For this episode, we brought on Emily Oster, an Economist, author and New York Times contributor. She shared how we can make measured approaches to decision making in parenting. We talked about a few of the do’s and don’ts in pregnancy and motherhood, using evidence to determine what is important to you and your family and some of the common misconceptions that come with breastfeeding, cosleeping, sleep training and more.
