Why during pregnancy it is better to give up not only coffee, but also tea22.08.2022
To test their theory, Irish scientists analyzed data on the birth of children from mothers who drank tea and coffee during pregnancy. They came to the conclusion that caffeine negatively affects the development of the fetus, preventing it from gaining normal weight.
The main danger of this phenomenon is that the child’s brain does not grow to the desired size, which increases the risk of many mental illnesses.
In addition, experts recommend that women do not abuse tea and coffee during breastfeeding, because the caffeine that the baby will receive with breast milk can greatly invigorate the baby and negatively affect his level of activity.
However, if a woman has low blood pressure, hypotension, you can fight it with the help of small “doses” of natural latte coffee. This does not harm the baby, only speeds up the heart rate in the fetus and the mother, causing a slight tachycardia. A safe dose of coffee for a pregnant woman with low blood pressure is one cup of coffee latte once a day, namely in the morning, in order to increase pressure. In any case, while in position, consult your doctor.
