Tea and Pregnancy
There, now that I have protected myself, let me tell you what I found out from the studies . First, I wanted to address the worries about caffeine coming from tea. According to the website, caffeine is a little risky. It increases blood pressure, heart rate, and the frequency of urination which can cause dehydration. The unborn baby also has an undeveloped metabolism which cannot handle caffeine. Studies on animals have even indicated that caffeine can cause birth defects, however, conclusive studies have not been conducted on humans. There are also studies which indicate that an excessive amount of caffeine, defined as more than 300mg per day, may result in miscarriage, preterm labor, and low birth-weight.
