In brief: Yes,
It is not just back health, but high heels in late pregnancy make for a very unable "platform" for a pregnant woman to walk causing balance losses and falls with injury to developing fetus'.
A protruding pregnant abdomen increases the lower back curve of teh spine(lordosis) and high non-stable heels will also cause "back pain".
