Should you limit or halt intake of caffeine during pregnancy? Some experts advise limiting caffeine consumption. Others say to stop taking caffeine altogether. After many years of study into the risk of caffeine during pregnancy, scientists are still divided. But all agree that pregnant women should have no more than moderate amounts of caffeine.
One scientific study found taking too much caffeine during pregnancy carries some risk. Another study found no risk of miscarriage. But why put the fetus in danger of birth defect or even miscarriage?
Recent news about caffeine, pregnancy and miscarriage is kind of confusing. A complex study from the National Institutes of Health and Ohio State University linked couple’s consumption of more than two caffeinated beverages a day to a risk of miscarriage. Just to be safe, women trying to conceive and pregnant women should limit caffeine intake.
