Claim #6: Coffee will bring on a miscarriage.
Response: The ACOG weighed the research and concluded in 2010 that up to 200 mg of caffeine a day isn’t a risk factor for miscarriage or preterm birth. That’s about the amount of caffeine in a1.5 cups of brewed coffee or one 12-ounce cup.
Although coffee doesn’t cause miscarriage, it can lead to some minor problems. Some women are more sensitive to the effects of caffeine when they are pregnant, the March of Dimes points out. So, if you feel unusually jittery or have trouble sleeping, try cutting back on your coffee.
