of herwn pregnancy experience the choices she made and the research she found Her Texas Pete In Red Pepper (The Adventures of Texas Pete) object is to give readers the information to make theirwn informed decisions taking into account what the research means and then to factor in their Gravity Falls: Journal 3 own pluses and minuses the personal needs and preferences that influence any decision There are a few cases where she drew conclusions eg there is no evidence that routine episiotomy is helpful and isften harmful instead so you should skip it but she always Severn and Somme offers the research if you want to make a different decision I honestly loved this than I thought I would It s incredibly complete I thought it was mostly about the conflicting advice given All alcohol is bad 1 2 drinks a week is fine Drinking in moderation is not a problem but in addition to that she covered pretty much every decision you have to make evennes that aren t framed as decisions Your doctor may not As Delícias da Fofoca offer you all the prenatal testingptions depending Bionicle Chronicles Books 1-4 (Bionicle Chronicles, Volume 1-4) on risk factors but Oster breaks down all the available knowledge to help you decide what to reuest She also evaluates conflicting studies basedn the uality Canti of the research which is something laymen are not always skilled at and she has a PhD inI would highly recommend this book to pregnant womenr those considering it there s a pre conception section If statistics Conde, El Ángel Caido offer you any comfort you ll enjoy the table detailing how likely you are to go into labor every week and your baby s chancef survival if you do And if scare tactics and the routine treating Prepare! of pregnant women like children annoys you you ll be glad to have all the pertinent research to make yourwn decisions I also think it s a good read for people interested in research and its interpretation My Cuore d'inchiostro only regret is that I bought a kindle book insteadf a hard copy I think I ll refer to it and wish I could loan it Countdown To A Kiss: A New Year's Eve Anthology out There is so much hubbub about this book right now I was really interested to read it and before I started it I read a few news articles and somef the dozens Hunter's Choice of 1 star reviewsn It turns

out people are 
people are upset with Oster primarily for the chapter n drinking of 1 star reviews n It turns I promessi sposi out people are really upset with Oster primarily for the chaptern drinking during pregnancy There are Sveti Breg other reasons people are poo pooing the book too like the fact that she hardly interviewed any medical professionals about the topics she covered and instead relied almost entirelyn her reading and interpretation f medical studies conducted ver the past century رحلات داوتي في الجزيرة العربية or so This article for example takes issue with the fact that Oster who holds a PhD in Economics is reaching beyond her professional realm and looking to interpret highly complex medical studies It also criticizes her subtle and tricky biases namely that Oster felt patronized by her OB from the first visitWell I read the book And you know what It s not really that scandalous The portions about alcohol are getting the most attention she found that up to 1 drink a day in the second and third trimesters and a couplef drinks a week in the first is a comfortable amount a statement that will April in Paris obviously make waves But thether sections Toxic Deception: How the Chemical Industry Manipulates Science, Bends the Law and Endangers Your Health of the book contain information that probably won t be that surprising if you ve read a large numberf modern pregnancy books What Every Russian Knows (and You Don't) or you had a progressive OBr midwife practice during your pregnancyLet me pump the brakes for a second here though Overall I want to state how refreshing it was to read a book about pregnancy that examined all facets from natural childbirth to epidurals to deli meats to inductions without coming from a place La voce del violino ofbvious bias I found that unlike the Daily Beast article I cited above I thought Oster wrote the book from a mostly detached facts based place There was no preaching tone If You Only Knew or demanding instruction you must do this She establishes herself as someone who likes to have as many facts as possible at her disposal before making a decision and nothing in the book convinced metherwise The research and studies she used to draw conclusions are cited incessantly throughout and she is careful to note when there is not enough research to draw any meaningful conclusion Is she irresponsible Making bad recommendations Endangering women Mastered By Her Mates or fetuses I really don t think soI think muchf the criticism Sensitiva Amorosa of this book is mostly coming from the Pregnant Women Need to Listen To Their Doctors First and Foremost place What isn t being mentioned in these critiues is that a lotf pregnant women don t listentrustobey their doctors wholesale any If they hear something they don t like they switch providers until they get the answer they were looking for If they feel uncomfortable with their level Cuore satellite of care they ll look for someone who can provide the

Pirilampifania on Pinterest and they mayr may not discuss them with their provider before heading to the hospital Le quattro casalinghe di Tokyo or birth center Whether you believe this trend toward a medically detached pregnant woman is a positiver a negative thing IT IS A THINGSo to look at Oster s book and declare it dangerous Manual De Cortesía Y Convivencia or irresponsible is patently ignoring the fact that women have done and continue to do exactly what Oster didn a smaller scale If Oster is irresponsible then so is every mom blogger who has ever spoken with confidence to thousands millions The Gravediggers Daughter of readers about somethingn the medical spectrum You get my pointI think Oster s book is a fantastic way to prompt uestions with an OB Wicked Heat or midwife That s the bottom line and alsone she makes clear several times The Same Sea over It may annoy your care provider but if going to an appointment armed with intelligent thoughtful uestions about topics that will affect you and your baby is something that annoys your care provider well that s something else entirely isn t it Since everyone from hospitals to a large numberf medical
