Hello and welcome.

The only reason why any medications are prescribed and administered during pregnancy is because there will be some abnormality that could cause harm to either the mother or the fetus. So I would recommend continuation of these injectables, and discuss why they are being administered with her doctor.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
