    Then it would likely be a good idea to do so.

    I suspect your OBGYN will encourage a limitation of regular (i.e., caffeine containing) coffee since the caffeine does cross the placenta into the baby. Whether he/she would agree that a decaffeinated product is fine we cannot tell you.

    The stance of the American Pregnancy Organization regardingcaffeine in pregnancy is outlined in the attached:
