In brief: High risk

Coumadin is a category x which means that it is clear it causes problems.
This includes central nervous system defects, spontaneous abortion, stillbirth, prematurity, hemorrhage, and ocular defects when given anytime during pregnancy, and a fetal warfarin syndrome when given during the first trimester. Fetal warfarin syndrome involves facial abnormalities and bone problems.
