ER physician Dr. Travis Stork chats with Brown University economics professor, Emily Oster. She is the author of “Expecting Better” and “Crib Sheet,” which have helped many people deal with the "standards" of pregnancy and parenthood. These books take an economic-based, scientifically studied, data-driven approach to pregnancy and parenting during early childhood.
When Emily got pregnant with her first child, she set out to bust some of the myths that every pregnant woman is told like: do not drink coffee and that alcohol should not be consumed during your pregnancy. Emily shares with Travis some of the biggest myths she was able to bust in her research.
She also shares about the confusion she experienced with those around her while she was pregnant and enjoying sushi out at restaurants. Travis admits that Parris had been out eating sushi the night she took a pregnancy test and found out that she was expecting, and the guilt she carried, even though she didn't even know she was pregnant.
Also, they take a look at things you can do to optimize pregnancy and have a happy baby. Travis realized speaking to Emily how important it is to really look at the data when making important decisions that are often clouded by myth and misinformation.
