During pregnancy, when women formed a new living creature, you must follow many strict rules. The mothers at least need to sleep, wear more comfortable clothing, do not expose yourself in heavy physical exercise and proper diet. Recently revealed that the diet must pay a lot of attention and try to minimize the amount of consumed coffee and tea. According to researchers from the National Institute of health USA, the abuse of these drinks can lead to terrible miscarriage.
Scientists have found that in the study involving 1228 women who planned to give birth between years 2007-2011. When women finally became pregnant, each of them filled out a questionnaire in which asks to specify the number of consumed their coffee. In addition, the researchers measured the levels of caffeine in their blood. Subsequently, they watched as consumed drinks affect the course of pregnancy.
The dangers of coffee for pregnant
Observations showed that consuming 200 milligrams of coffee a day, more than two cups, significantly increases the risk of miscarriage. It is noteworthy that in the first eight weeks of pregnancy women are most vulnerable to beverages containing caffeine. But these include not only the coffee, but also all kinds of energy and even tea. Even if we reduce the consumption of caffeine to a minimum, the child may be born with underweight or with other pathologies.
Scientists still don’t exactly know why caffeine is so bad for the unborn child. However, they have very reasonable assumption that blame the stimulating property of coffee and other similar drinks. First, they increase blood pressure of the person, and secondly speeds up the heartbeat. All this together can cause miscarriage.
What to do before pregnancy?
Based on the foregoing, the researchers recommend that women during pregnancy to refuse caffeinated beverages. And it is best to prepare for this long before conception. Also, they should prepare themselves and their families to ensure that they cannot lift weights. Of course, the clothes for pregnant women also should think a little before pregnancy.
However, there is a large probability that the researchers exaggerate the danger of caffeine for pregnant women. The results of the study may be inaccurate because survey participants could give false information and specify less servings of caffeine. Besides, years before other groups of scientists did not find any relationship between coffee consumption and risk of miscarriage.
