Brief Answer:
Need to check for infections...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Sometimes white discharge is seen in pregnant women due to the effects of pregnancy hormones. It isn't alarming. However I will recommend she visiting her obstetrician if discharge persists and if it smells foul. Infections need to be ruled out.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
