During pregnancy, consuming more than 300 mg of caffeine per day is not recommended. This means drinking no more than two cups of coffee. There is also caffeine in tea, iced coffee, iced tea and some soft drinks.

Herbal teas

The following herbal teas are usually harmless if consumed in moderation (no more than two to three cups per day). Use the peel of oranges or other citrus fruits, ginger and wild rose.

Avoid drinking the same herbal tea every day by alternating your choices. Another option is lemon juice or slices of ginger in hot water.
