Can anyone take coffee when pregnant?

Yes, one can. There is no need to stop drinking coffee when pregnant. A moderate intake (around 2 -3 cups a day) is perfectly harmless. (However, presuming that you add 2 spoons of sugar in your coffee, you are consuming around 6 spoons of sugar with 3 cups of coffee! Needless to say, this will cause a greater weight gain during pregnancy!) Research findings as to whether more than 3 cups of coffee in a day is harmful, is inconsistent. As a result, different doctors make different suggestions. We would encourage you to play safe when pregnant and don’t have more than 2 cups of coffee in a day. After all, caffeine is not present in coffee alone, and you never know in what other forms you are consuming it. 

Does tea contain caffeine?
Yes, tea does contain caffeine. A cup of moderately brewed tea contains around 30% less caffeine than a cup of coffee does.

One can have coffee immediately after a meal?
Coffee inhibits the body’s ability to absorb certain minerals like iron and calcium, so avoid consuming coffee within one hour of a meal. It’s best to have coffee in the evenings, along with a light snack.

Any tips to cut down caffeine consumption?
Switch to decaf coffee. Brew the coffee tea leaves for a shorter period. Stir the coffee directly into a cup of milk without heating the coffee separately in water. Switch to herb teas. Some of them do not contain caffeine. (Read the list of ingredients.)
