Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Gall stones do not cause any abnormalities in the baby. The only problem she might have is of pain due to the gall stones.If the pain is unbearable then it becomes difficult to operate her for gall stones due to pregnancy.

Welcome To HealthcareMagic.
There is no direct adverse effect on baby or mother due to gall stones.If she gets some abdominal pain during pregnancy it would be difficult to differentiate and bear it.So , I advise her to go for a scan , know the size of the stones , take treatment for the same .

Take care.
