Coffee and pregnancy? Is it time to skip your early morning caffeine fix?
Decaf coffee might be a better choice (we might be biased, but our decaf tastes just like your normal cuppa!), however it’s always a good idea to do some research and speak to your healthcare professional.
We all know often times it's impossible to resist the smell of coffee. But before having that delicious cup, it’s important to know the ins and outs of coffee and how much is safe to drink when pregnant.
Coffee’s caffeine reacts with the human body as a natural stimulant and diuretic. Stimulants are known to increase blood pressure and heart rate, both of which are generally not advised during a woman’s pregnancy.
But you might ask, how much caffeine is safe during pregnancy? Can a pregnant woman drink caffeinated coffee?
Well, we can't give you a direct answer as every woman's individual circumstance may vary.
Several research and studies might give you the go signal to drink coffee during your pregnancy. However, it's always best to check with your healthcare professional first :)
