No: Ideally, Lisinopril (and other ace-inhibitors, usually end in -pril) should stopped before trying to get pregnant. But if you find out you are pregnant and are taking it, stop taking it and call your doctor. Lisinopril can cause some congenital malformations in early pregnancy and kidney problems in later pregnancy. Babies exposed to Lisinopril will need extra monitoring mainly with ultrasounds.
