We’ve finally got an expert, who ADMITS TO BEING AN EXPERT! Meet Viara Mileva, PhD, who studied genetics, maternal behaviour, child-parent attachment and bedsharing. She knows a lot of sciencey stuff about mothering, and is also just a badass mother. (And a badass photographer!) After some auxiliary chat about limb loss and California, Viara gives us the science-based lowdown on SIDS, attachment, and bedsharing and then pontificates on technology and Cardi B.
Here is a link to a video on the Strange Situation Test Viara told us about and it features Viara’s 2 post-doc supervisors.
