Women who are pregnant, or trying to be, may want to avoid the morning cup of coffee - a new study is saying there are no safe levels of caffeine consumption during pregnancy.

An analysis of observational studies, published in the journal BMJ Evidence Based Medicine Monday, found evidence to suggest that maternal caffeine consumption may be associated with negative pregnancy outcomes, warning that there is “no safe level of consumption” for pregnant mothers.

According to the analysis, James says there is substantial evidence of an association between maternal caffeine consumption and negative pregnancy outcomes, specifically miscarriage, stillbirth, low birth weight, childhood acute leukemia and childhood obesity, but not preterm birth.
