Lovenox is considered safe during pregnancy. Women prone to thrombosis may experience various problems during the pregnancy. Sometimes the baby may stop growing. Lovenox treatment may prevent that. So using it, if your doctor said you should, is essential.
I hope I've helped!
If you'd like further clarifications, please let me know.

Kind Regards!
