What to Expect When You're Expecting meets Freakonomics: an award-winning economist disproves standard recommendations about pregnancy to empower women while they're expecting. From the author of Cribsheet and The Family Firm, a data-driven decision making guide to the early years of parenting

Pregnancy??unquestionably one of the most pro­found, meaningful experiences of adulthood??can reduce otherwise intelligent women to, well, babies. Pregnant women are told to avoid cold cuts, sushi, alcohol, and coffee without ever being told why these are forbidden. Rules for prenatal testing are similarly unexplained. Moms-to-be desperately want a resource that empowers them to make their own right choices.
When award-winning economist Emily Oster was a mom-to-be herself, she evaluated the data behind the accepted rules of pregnancy, and discovered that most are often misguided and some are just flat-out wrong. Debunking myths and explaining everything from the real effects of caffeine to the surprising dangers of gardening, Expecting Better is the book for every pregnant woman who wants to enjoy a healthy and relaxed pregnancy??and the occas

I love the data and information, I felt like a lot of it was incomplete however. She talks about the average C-section in the US being 30%, the world health organization recommends it only be 15% or less however. This is never mentioning the book. Also she talks about obesity and women, but never talks about being overweight yet fit--working out regularly and eating healthy--versus being a healthy weight, but not having a good diet exercise, and the impacts there of. I'd love to see a follow up, more expended version that addresses these. ( )

I forgot to add this from my stealth reading, whoops (it popped as a Book You May Be interested In and I thought huh, pretty sure I reviewed it... I have not).

This was the first book I read in the pregnancy last spring, and it really helped set my frame of reference for the deluge of solicited & unsolicited information and advice headed my way. I really appreciated Oster's approach of looking not just at studies, but the quality of those studies: context matters, and if the correlation of alcohol and birth defects also coincides with cocaine usage, is that really informative? In general, I liked this more than some of the other "gal pal" type of books re: pregnancy.

Do take Oster's recommendations with a grain of salt as she's an economist by training and is essentially doing a bunch of metaanalyses and lit reviews in this book, which can be useful but context is key. She does acknowledge the choices she personally made weren't necessarily the right ones for expecting friends, and generally takes a "do what works for you" attitude.... which is why it's a little weird she became the leading voice for reopening schools during the pandemic (c'mon Oster, correlation isn't causation). I've already bought a used copy of [b:Cribsheet: A Data-Driven Guide to Better, More Relaxed Parenting, from Birth to Preschool|40121328|Cribsheet A Data-Driven Guide to Better, More Relaxed Parenting, from Birth to Preschool|Emily Oster|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1534142751l/40121328._SY75_.jpg|62221619] and will probably read [b:The Family Firm: A Data-Driven Guide to Better Decision Making in the Early School Years|55997402|The Family Firm A Data-Driven Guide to Better Decision Making in the Early School Years|Emily Oster|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1606112889l/55997402._SY75_.jpg|87227302] later, but hesitant to subscribe to her substack, if that makes sense.

Simply put, this book is Freakonomics but for pregnancy, and it's fantastic. This book is what happens when an Economics professor from the University of Chicago gets pregnant, gets conflicting information about pregnancy, and researches it herself and draws conclusions from the data.

I'd recommend to anyone considering having kids, I sure feel a lot more prepared for this aspect of it, whenever that day may come. There's also "sequels" for babies and toddlers that I'll probably check out. ( )

Informative read looking at the statistics of various pregnancy factors and wisdom. ( )

Interesting read! I haven't checked her sources but her reasoning seems legit and compelling. ( )

Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
As unpleasant as it is, nausea is a sign of a healthy pregnancy. Miscarriage rates are much lower for women who are nauseated than for those who are not. In early pregnancy the differences can be quite large: one study showed that the overall risk of first-trimester miscarriage was 30 percent for women without nausea, versus just 8 percent for those who were nauseated.

Knowing this, the sicker I felt in the morning during my first trimester, the happier Jesse was. There is nothing quite like waking up, feeling terrible, and having your spouse tell you how excited he is that you feel bad. I don't think I've ever seen him quite as happy as the one day I actually threw up.
Pregnancy seemed to be a world of arbitrary rules. It was as if when we were shopping for houses, our realtor announced that people without kids do not like backyards, and therefore she would not be showing us any houses with backyards. Worse, it was as if when we told her that we actually do like backyards she said, "No, you don't, this is the rule." You'd fire your real estate agent on the spot if she did this. Yet this is how pregnancy often seemed to work.
