Study: Caffeine may impact fetus growth

May 20, 2010

The finding is reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

It adds to the conflicting body of research into whether caffeine during pregnancy affects fetal growth.

According to this report, heavy caffeine users also had babies whose birth length was shorter than others.

The study's authors say lots of caffeine intake does seem to affect the growth of the fetus from the first trimester onwards.
