Safety unknown: The safety of domperidone in pregnancy remains unknown. In a prospective study,120 1st- trimester pregnant women taking domperidone were compared against 212 age-matched pregnant women not exposed to any potential teratogenic agent. There were three babies born with malformations in each group. Pending more data, its not worth risking your child. Ref: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23445139
