Editorial Reviews

Review

"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. And it makes for valuable homework before those harried ob-gyn appointments, even for lucky patients whose doctors are able to talk about the rationale behind their advice." New York Times
 
"A book . . . that pregnant women won't want to miss." Parents Magazine

“Emily Oster is the non-judgmental girlfriend holding our hand and guiding us through pregnancy and motherhood. She has done the work to get us the hard facts in a soft, understandable way.” —Amy Schumer

"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. —Babyzone
 
"Gives moms-to-be a big helping of peace of mind!" —Harvey Karp M.D., bestselling author of The Happiest Baby on the Block
 
"It took someone as smart as Emily Oster to make it all this simple. She cuts through the thicket of anxiety and received wisdom, and gives us the facts. Expecting Better is both enlightening and calming. It almost makes me want to get pregnant." —Pamela Druckerman, New York Times bestselling author of Bringing Up Bébé

1.0 out of 5 stars Insensitive to those who have had previous miscarriage
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 26, 2020
After a recent miscarriage, I’m now pregnant again which I am finding to be a very anxious time. I bought this book looking for some reassurance - that I did not get! See the image attached - based on one academic paper from 1989! I don’t think the author realises the impact this sort of statement can have on someone who has been through miscarriage and is already fearing the worst for any future pregnancies. Very disappointed and to be honest disgusted that this is sold as a book to reassure but did the absolute opposite for me. I haven’t found any other evidence to back this statement.
