Maternal coffee intake and the risk of bleeding in early pregnancy: a cross-sectional analysis
TLDR
It is shown that heavy coffee drinking was independently associated with a higher risk of bleeding in early pregnancy among pregnant Korean women, suggesting that caffeine intake before conception and during pregnancy should be reduced.
Biases Inherent in Studies of Coffee Consumption in Early Pregnancy and the Risks of Subsequent Events
TLDR
Five potential biases inherent in studying the relationship between early-pregnancy-coffee consumption and subsequent events are discussed, recall bias, misclassification, residual confounding, reverse causation, and publication bias.
Maternal coffee intake and the risk of bleeding in early pregnancy: A cross-sectional analysis
TLDR
It is shown that heavy coffee drinking was independently associated with a higher risk of bleeding in early pregnancy among pregnant Korean women, suggesting that caffeine intake before conception and during pregnancy should be reduced.
Nutritional aspects of behaviour and biology during pregnancy and postpartum
BackgroundA well-balanced nutritious diet is important for the pregnant woman and the growing fetus, as well as for their future health. Poor nutrition results from both over-consumption of energy-
Caffeine exposure during pregnancy: Is it safe?
Association between coffee or caffeine consumption and fecundity and fertility: a systematic review and dose–response meta-analysis
TLDR
Results from this meta-analysis support the growing evidence of an association between coffee/caffeine intake and the risk of SAB and are supportive of a precautionary principle advised by health organizations, although the advised limit of two to three cups of coffee/200–300 mg caffeine per day may be too high.

TLDR
Analysis of data collected from a database focusing on coffee intake during pregnancy showed that, in pregnant women starting from the consumption of three coffees a day, there is a statistically significant association between number of coffees and reduction of babies birth weight.
EVALUATION OF CAFFEINE CONSUMPTION AND EFFECT DURING PREGNANCY AMONG WOMEN IN THE UAE
TLDR
Providing comprehensive counselling for pregnant women is essential in order to prevent the negative impact of caffeine consumption and to prevent spontaneous abortion and stillbirth in the UAE.
Maternal caffeine consumption and pregnancy outcomes: a narrative review with implications for advice to mothers and mothers-to-be
TLDR
Current evidence does not support health advice that assumes 'moderate' caffeine consumption during pregnancy is safe, and the cumulative scientific evidence supports pregnant women and women contemplating pregnancy being advised to avoid caffeine.
The Effect of Caffeine on Pregnancy-Fact or Myth?
TLDR
Avoiding the consumption of coffee, chocolate and tea during pregnancy appears prudent until more reliable evidences are emerging, because of ion trapping weak bases that are non-ionized and lipophilic like caffeine diffuse across the placental barrier and become ionized in the more acidic fetal blood.

TLDR
To study the association between cigarette, alcohol, and caffeine consumption and the occurrence of spontaneous abortion, a large number of women who have had an abortion say they did not know that smoking or drinking alcohol or caffeine contributed to their abortion.
A prospective study of maternal smoking and spontaneous abortion
TLDR
This data indicates that cigarette smoking is a risk factor for spontaneous abortion in women with at-risk pregnancies, but conclusions from many studies may be impaired by methodological problems.
Risk factors for first trimester miscarriage—results from a UK‐population‐based case–control study
TLDR
The aim of this study was to examine the association between biological, behavioural and lifestyle risk factors and risk of miscarriage in women with a history of miscarriage.
Cigarette, alcohol, and coffee consumption and spontaneous abortion.
TLDR
Clear and statistically significant associations were found between cigarette and alcohol consumption and spontaneous abortion and a weaker but statistically significant association with coffee consumption.

Effects of caffeine ingestion during pregnancy.
TLDR
The heavy coffee drinkers among the pregnant women had high rates of spontaneous abortion, chromosomal abnormality and congenital multi-anomalies, and the multiple socioeconomic variables might be more important than any direct effect of caffeine.
Caffeine Consumption during Pregnancy and Spontaneous Abortion
TLDR
Heavy caffeine consumers who decreased their caffeine intake early in pregnancy had a risk of spontaneous abortion similar to that of nonconsumers, whereas heavy caffeine consumers reporting nausea had a doubled risk for spontaneous abortion.
The effect of caffeine consumption and nausea on the risk of miscarriage.
TLDR
The results indicate that high caffeine consumption during pregnancy (>300 mg/day), in particular coffee consumption, is an independent risk factor for increased risk and nausea is anindependent protective factor for a lower risk of miscarriage.
Maternal Caffeine Consumption and Spontaneous Abortion: A Prospective Cohort Study
TLDR
It is suggested that some ingredient of tea or coffee may account for some of the observed association of caffeine with spontaneous abortion, and caffeine consumption is more strongly related to spontaneous abortion than alcohol or cigarette use in early pregnancy.
