Thumbs down Caffeine Intake During Pregnancy

A study at the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, Netherlands has indicated
that pregnant women who drank more than six cups of coffee a day can cause the
baby's birth is shorter and less weight. The study involving 7300 it has
provided a conclusion that caffeine intake seems to affect the growth of first
trimester fetal length and so on.

Researchers also suggested that caffeine can also affect low birth weight, but
it will also be developed further research on the impact of caffeine consumption
for pregnant women. They also cautioned that although drinking is not only up to
six cups a day is safe it is not true.

The possibility of further impacts for pregnant women who consume excessive
caffeine was miscarried fetuses. Its recommended that pregnant women consume no
more than 200 milligrams of caffeine per day, the number found in a single
12-ounce cup of coffee in the U.S.
