Reviews

EXPECTING BETTER will be a revelation for curious mothers-to-be whose doctors fail to lay out the pros and cons of that morning latte, let alone discuss real science - NEW YORK TIMESEmily Oster struck a blow for common sense and freedom when she published her ground breaking book EXPECTING BETTER. In it she demolishes the nonsensical shibboleths and politically correct nostrums that have dogged pregnant women for so long ... her book should be required reading for pregnant women everywhere - DAILY EXPRESSThe sense [is] so often conveyed by medicine that even by seeking a solution for a pain or ailment, you are failing to put your baby first ... [Emily Oster's] book has done something important to counter this creed - indubitably important for pregnant women, but vital, too, for everyone else - GUARDIAN
