In brief: No
Many women have a concern that caffeinated drinks such as coffee may increase the risk of miscarriage.
Most studies show that one cup of coffee daily does not have any adverse effect on the risk of miscarriage. But women who have multiple miscarriages should consult with their physician for more specific advice.
