On average, one cup of tea that contains caffeine is around 75mg. Significantly less than a cup of coffee that contains around 140mg.

Teas and Herbs Beneficial for Pregnancy
Chamomile contains properties that promote sleep, reduces inflammation and help to improve digestion. Pregnancy insomnia commonly affects women in their first and third trimester but can occur at any point during pregnancy. Insomnia can negatively impact you from having an important night's rest. We know how vital sleep is for baby's growth.
Along with its light sedative effects Chamomile is a naturally occurring anti-inflammatory. Along with growing a baby your body goes through changes that often cause muscle aches, swelling and some pain. Chamomile helps to reduce the inflammation that comes along with these pregnancy symptoms. Anti-inflammatory properties in chamomile also assist and help to sooth digestive implications such as indigestion, heartburn and nausea. If implications with digestion occur during pregnancy improper digestion can struggle to convert the food into nutrients.
Raspberry Leaf Tea
Raspberry leaf tea is thought to assist in priming the uterus for labour and speeding up contractions by increasing blood flow and strengthening the muscles in the uterus. Only recommended to drink after 37 weeks for safety precautions. It is said to reduce labour time and decrease the chances of intervention during birth.
Peppermint contains natural properties that assist with reducing nausea, vomiting, easing heartburn, assisting digestion and minimising headaches commonly associated with pregnancy. Peppermint tea soothes stomach nausea so the stomach acid can break down food without causing vomiting. Along with reducing nausea peppermint is great for easing pregnancy related heartburn. Implications with digestion commonly affect pregnant women impacting them from eating essential nutritious food required for a growing baby.
Peppermint leaf tea contains menthol, this active ingredient is beneficial for easing muscle aches and pains and is commonly used to reduce headaches. Headaches and migraines commonly impact women during their pregnancy, peppermint is a great way to naturally manage painful headaches that are safe during pregnancy.
