Abstract

Commentary on: Sengpiel V, Elind E, Bacelis J, et al. Maternal caffeine intake during pregnancy is associated with birth weight but not with gestational length: results from a large prospective observational cohort study. BMC Med 2013;11:42. Implications for practice and research The findings support that maternal coffee consumption is associated with marginally increased gestational length, decreased birth weight, but not preterm delivery. Future research is required to confirm cause and effects.
