Brief Answer:
Hi I think it can cause problem in pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, welcome to healthcaremagic.

I think if the pregnant woman comes in contact with cats litter, it can lead to toxoplasma infection leading to pregnancy loss.

You can get a TORCH profile to confirm if toxoplasma infection is there or not. If IgM is high, it means there is toxoplasma infection.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any other query, I will be happy to help.
