In brief: Unknown

For many years diazepam & its related drug group have been known for having the potential to produce birth defects in babies & a withdrawal syndrome in newborns.
It is listed as a category "d" drug, meaning it is never recommended in pregnancy due to its known toxic effect on the fetus.
