Is it safe to drink green tea during pregnancy? I'm 7 weeks pregnant and have a general routine to drink green tea first thing in the morning and then one cup in the evening.

Green tea has antioxidants and hence provides lots of health benefits...The only concern in pregnancy is the total caffeine intake during early pregnancy...If you not taking lots of coffee, tea, soda then upto two cups of green tea should be fine. Also a small study suggests green tea reduces the absorption of folic acid..Folic acid is very important in early pregnancy during embryogenesis..May be you should not take your folic acid tablet alongwith the green tea.
