Hi there
lyme disease is a serious infection and like other similar infection it can have detrimental effects on fetus including abortions and deformities. Although no specific pattern of damage is known. Treatment of doxycycline required for month can itself seriously affect bone growth of fetus.

I hope this addresses your concern .. get back if any further doubts.No.. its not usually caused by fleas.
