Coffee Consumption During Pregnancy
By Mediconsult's Nutrition Services
Q. Is it okay to drink coffee while I'm pregnant?
A. It's recommended that you avoid coffee and other sources of caffeine while you are pregnant. If you "must" have coffee, try to limit it to one cup per day. Too much caffeine can cause dehydration which is harmful to you and your fetus. It can also interfere with proper rest and sleep. Coffee can interfere with absorption of certain minerals, so don't take your vitamins or minerals at the same time as coffee.
