Researchers at the University of Queensland, Australia, conducted a study and concluded that drinking coffee daily does not increase the risk of miscarriage or premature birth.
There is a belief among many pregnant women that daily coffee consumption can increase the risk of miscarriage or premature birth. For this reason, many women stop drinking coffee as soon as they find out they are pregnant.
However, a new study conducted by researchers at the University of Queensland in Australia shows that there is no need to worry so much.
Based on the results of this study, moderate coffee consumption does not increase the risk of miscarriage or premature birth.
The researchers of this study, Dr. Gunn-Helen Moen, Dr. Daniel Huang, and Caroline Brito Nunes from the University of Queensland’s Institute of Molecular Biology, used genetics to analyze coffee drinking behavior in this study.
The findings of these researchers show that limited coffee consumption during pregnancy does not increase the risk of miscarriage, stillbirth or premature birth.
However, the researchers emphasize that this study only looked at some adverse pregnancy outcomes, and that caffeine consumption may affect other important aspects of fetal development as well.
