Is Caffeine During Pregnancy Safe?


What could make a pregnant woman nastier than going without her morning cup of coffee? How about a dillhole telling her that she really should be drinking decaf.

People love this kind of crap. It’s those little golden nuggets of advice that some like to drop on you like “I betcha didn’t realize that tea has a lot of caffeine” with that demented sing-song tone. I think every pregnant woman should be issued a large metal shovel to silence these advice people but, back to caffeine.

It is recommended that pregnant women have no more than 200mg of caffeine a day which is equivalent to two mugs coffee or four cups of tea or five cans of cola per day. Seems reasonable but it also seems reasonable for someone who isn’t pregnant but what do I know.
