caffeine

Postby expert@preeclampsia.org » Fri Dec 14, 2007 11:52 am

I had preeclampsia from about 34 weeks, with my diagnosis being detected by me at 36 in A and P class. I was send home on bed rest with blood pressure at about 180/110. I went in to the hospital with pain in my side, and was diagnosed with a HELLP and had a c-section. I am pregnant again and a doctor told me absolutely no caffeine.

caffeine in moderation is OK to the best of my understanding, and there is no consistent evidence to suggest a role in caffeine intake with regard to recurrent pregnancy loss.
