Caffeine and getting pregnant

Caffeine can affect your fertility as well as the health of your baby when you get pregnant

Drinking a lot of caffeine before and during pregnancy has been linked to infertility and pregnancy complications such as low birth weight, miscarriage and stillbirth. So the advice is to limit your intake as much as possible under 200mg a day. Calculate your caffeine intake with this pregnancy caffeine calculator.
