6 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

A recent study showed that consuming more than 200mg of caffeine per day (one 12 oz cup of coffee) was associated with a higher risk of miscarriage but that there was no difference in miscarriage rates in women who drank 1 cup per day.
Switching to decaf or cutting back on caffeine is best during pregnancy but moderate consumption is generally safe.
