In brief: Rabies vaccine

Rabies vaccine is under class C, that means that animal studies revealed a harmful or teratogenic effects on the fetus or there is no controlled studies on pregnant women, you need to weigh your options, risk vs benefit, if you were exposed & at risk for contracting rabies you have no choice but to take the vaccine with close F/U with your obstitrician.
Wishing you & baby good luck.
