Green tea, or even black tea, is considerably safer during pregnancy than coffee. The main reason for this is that tea is much lower in caffeine than coffee; coffee typically contains contains 2-4 times as much caffeine per cup as green tea. While small amounts of caffeine are perfectly safe during pregnancy, there is some evidence that heavy caffeine use may increase the risk of miscarriage or other problems.

Drinking several cups of green tea a day is perfectly safe, but drinking the same amount of coffee is probably not a good idea. A single cup of coffee though is probably just fine. Don't worry too much! Green tea tends to be milder overall on the body than coffee, not just because of the caffeine, but because coffee can be harsher on your digestive system and is more acidic.

Is it safe to drink decaf tea during pregnancy?

Yes, decaffeinated teas and even decaf coffee are safe to drink.Caffeinated teas are even safe to drink during pregnancy, in moderation. The amount of caffeine in a typical cup of tea is much less than that in a typical cup of coffee. The current stance of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is that up to 200mg of caffeine daily is totally safe during pregnancy. This is enough for 1-2 cups of coffee or 3-5 cups of tea, depending on how strong it is.Even higher amounts are going to be much safer than, say, smoking or alcohol consumption. Moderate tea and coffee drinking is not worth worrying about, although tea is probably a safer bet as it is much lower in caffeine.Yes u can. U can actually drink 3-4 cups of normal tea but i wud suggest decaf cups 3-4 are gud.

Are herbal laxative teas safe during pregnancy?

Purgatives, the type of laxatives (herbal or otherwise) that cause the muscles of the bowel to greater action, are not safe during pregnancy because they may stimulate the uterus as well. When it comes to regularity during pregnancy, you are far safer sticking to your healthy foods that include soluble and insoluble fibre and drinking plenty of water. Also moderate exercise is good too, but consult your physician on how much is safe for you and your pregnancy.
