Quoting twinmami:“ Its not made up, its scientific fact. 2 cups per day doubles m/c risk - thats the most up to date statistically ... [snip!] ... on top of new data until national guidelines are produced. Personally i prefer to ensure the safety of my kids the best i can.”
Yah I just researched it, one website says not to drink more than 200mg, there's STILL less than 200mg of caffeine in 2 cups of coffee.
Overall, 172 of women in the study (16.18 per cent) miscarried. Whereas 264 women reported no consumption of any drinks containing caffeine during pregnancy, 635 women (60 per cent) reported consuming between 0-200 mg of caffeine a day, and 164 women drank 200 mg or more. Other risk factors for miscarriage were also accounted for in the study, which found that miscarriage was associated with consumption of caffeine overall, rather than particular drinks.
Those statistics are average miscarriage rates as it is, it's said that 1 in 6 women miscarry.
When I got pregnant, I was encouraged to drink caffeine because the lack thereof made me get insane migraines. Your information isn't totally right, no one can REALLY determine the reason someone miscarried in the first trimester.
The study says nothing about age, health background, activity levels or ANYTHING else. They can't base findings on that alone.
Maybe you should stop using google as an answerpad and get real facts, factor in all the conditions, not just what the woman was drinking.
