Being pregnant means you have to steer clear of many things you like to eat and drink to ensure that your baby is perfectly healthy when it’s born. For the lady Matcha lovers out there, whether it’s safe to drink Matcha during pregnancy is a big concern.
At Teaologists, we care about your health and your baby’s. Let us shed some light on this and let you know things that are important for yourself and your soon-to-be-born baby.
Matcha is the healthiest beverage on earth. It is chock-full of antioxidants which are extremely healthy for you and your soon-to-be-born bundle of joy.
Matcha releases caffeine into your bloodstream much slower than coffee does, however we always err on the side of safety. It's not always simple to take into account the other foods and beverages containing caffeine that you might eat and drink during the same day.
However, pay attention to the signals your body is sending you. Every human being is different in the way which caffeine affects them. If you feel any kind of discomfort, stop the intake immediately and consult your doctor.
Since babies absorb all their nutrition from their mothers, pregnant women need to be very careful about where they get their nutrition from and just how much is the right amount.
You needn't worry about that really, you would need to drink around 6 cups of Matcha a day to start overdoing your daily caffeine recommendations. Again, remember what other caffeine you may consume from items including other teas, coffee and chocolate.
During pregnancy, your body is more sensitive and vulnerable to upset.

It’s natural for lactating mothers to crave certain foods and drinks. It’s safe to eat and drink healthy foods and beverages like Matcha tea in moderation. But it’s wise to keep an eye on your baby’s body dynamics. If you notice changes in your baby’s sleep cycle, reduce your Matcha for a while and see if that makes a difference.
Though, caffeine is not the only thing you should watch out for. Matcha contains a lot of phytonutrients which are beneficial for your body but no so much for your child's. But keep in mind that it's not just about the caffeine and phytonutrients. It's about the overall wellbeing of the mother.
If you're healthy, your child will be healthy. If a cup or two of Matcha makes you happy, it will make your baby happy as well.
