In brief: Very carefully.
See published guidelines ( endocrine society and american thyroid association).
Thionamides including Propylthiouracil and Methimazole are used depending on stage of pregnancy, beta blockers added for short term control of symptoms. Surgery in rare cases. Despite this approx 1-5% of infants are born with fetal grave's.
