Coffee during pregnancy


Danish scientists from the Danish National Cohort on fertility (Danish National Birth Cohort) conducted an experiment, which involved 88,482 pregnant women.As a result of this study, it was found that drinking more than eight cups of coffee a day by 59% increases the risk of spontaneous abortion or fetal death.The study took into account both internal and external conditions of pregnancy - smoking, chronic diseases, heredity, alcohol and so on.

As a result, the following results were obtained:

- a group of women who drank during pregnancy from 1.5 to three cups of coffee, only three percent of the cases met intrauterine fetal death;
- pregnant women who drink 3-4 cups a day of coffee, fetal deaths reached 13%;
- when consuming 4-7 cups of coffee a day, the risk of fetal death has already reached 33%;
- the use of more than 8 cups of coffee a day increases the risk of fetal death by as much as 59%.

Frightening statistics?Strongly do not have to be afraid, but to listen and to reconsider their views

on the coffee still stands.

general, to date, scientists have not been able to reach a consensus about whether coffee is useful or harmful ... However, the lack of unanimity is observed only in the case when it comes to the use of coffee in a "normal - not pregnant" state.But pregnant women to drink coffee is not recommended - here are just amazing there is consent.If you can not give up coffee completely, it is necessary to reduce the amount of coffee consumption to a minimum.

how the coffee on the body of the future mother and baby

Today, probably, even a child knows that coffee on the central nervous system stimulant effect.In this hyperexcitability has a negative impact on the dream of a pregnant woman on her mood, and even on the internal systems of.The use of this aromatic and delicious drink could lead to an acceleration of the kidneys, and this in turn leads to increased excretion of urine, dehydration.

In addition, it makes sense to talk about increasing the gastric secretion of hydrochloric acid (5 times), an increase in the secretion of the salivary glands (2 times), irritation of the mucous of the gastrointestinal tract, of the palpitations and breathing to increase blood pressure.

list of negative impacts can be supplemented also by the fact that coffee has the ability to rid the body of calcium, magnesium, iron, sodium, phosphorus, potassium and other essential minerals .Moreover, only the conclusions from the body of important elements of coffee "is not limited to" - a drink adversely affects the assimilation of all these important minerals.

But over what should especially consider - is over how coffee affects reproduction.Scientists have already shown that coffee consumption in excessive quantities often leads to difficulties in conceiving.You can say that three cups of coffee a day are a kind of substitute for contraceptive.That is why, if you're only planning to become pregnant, have to be excluded from their diet of coffee ... and do not include beverage back up until the baby is born is no longer fed with breast milk.Returning to the adverse effects on the reproductive function, it is worth noting that pregnant women have this property of coffee turns increased tone of the uterus, respectively, also increases the risk of miscarriage.

Yet too should not be afraid - all of the above effects of coffee are expressed only if you drink more than two or three 150 gram cups per day .So if you're a couple of times a week, allow yourself a small cup of coffee, the specific reasons for concern.But if you can, if you can resist, then it is better to completely eliminate this drink during pregnancy and lactation.

It is worth remembering that coffee, like any other liquid, entering the female body, and gets to the kid - the placenta.Thus placental vessels are narrowed, consequently, more difficult to fetus will flow oxygen and other nutrients.It increases the likelihood that you will hear from your doctor's diagnosis: hypoxia.In addition, some scientists believe that consumption of coffee during pregnancy can lead to the development of diabetes in a child.

And one more thing: Coffee has the ability to reduce appetite, for a pregnant woman is simply unacceptable.Especially, in case the expectant mother suffers from toxicity and hardly makes himself there without coffee.

In general, put the weight on one side and the heady smell of an amazing taste of coffee and the other all the facts described above ... and discard coffee.It is clear that to bring themselves into hysterics still not worth it - if you completely give up coffee, you can not, limit yourself to 2-3 cups a week, and the negative impact of coffee on the body will be reduced to a minimum, and in a good mood will not have to leave.
