TIP TUESDAY: Coffee & pregnancy

TIP TUESDAY: According to The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, moderate caffeine consumption (less than 200 mg per day) does not appear to be a major contributing factor in miscarriage or preterm birth. That equates to about one 8 oz cup of joe per day. ☕️ 🤰🏻

⚠️Of note, research is limited to retrospective studies because it would be unethical to give pregnant women a drug or substance in order to see if it causes complications. Caffeine does cross the placenta, but the evidence we do have suggests it is okay in moderation.
