In brief: Safe with pregnancy

Whey protein comes from milk based products.
It is completely safe during pregnancy when used in conjunction with resistance based training it will help increase lean body mass. If not used in conjunction with exercise program, if you are otherwise eating a well balanced diet, not much benefit to supplementation with whey protein.
