Can I keep drinking coffee or caffeinated sodas? Soon-to-be moms are generally told by doctors not to drink more than a cup or two of coffee a day, a recommendation in line with a 2010 review concluding moderate caffeine consumption doesn’t promote premature births or miscarriages or harm fetal growth.

But studies in mice offer the controversial suggestion that at larger doses, caffeine can impair memory and increase the risk of having seizures.

Its always best to talk to your doctor to get his or her opinion about coffee during pregnancy and how it relates to your situation.
