Brief Answer:
both are safe for baby

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,
Welcome to HCM,
Both susten and duphaston are progesterone hormones used to maintain placental function when we suspect threatened abortion.
They are absolutely safe, infact recommended for a pregnancy which is complicated with spotting or bleeding.
Do not worry regarding their safety. Take them as advised by your doctor.
Hope this eleviates your anxiety.
