In brief: Limited Data
Both antibiotics have limited data available for any fetal effects during pregnancy.
Invanz (ertapenem) is considered category b or safe based on animal studies with limited human experience. Vancomycin is considered category b/c for simlar reasons. There is no data reporting malformations.
