In brief: Enbrel (etanercept)

Enbrel (etanercept) is a category b medication.
There are several reported normal pregnancy outcomes after Enbrel (etanercept) exposure. A pregnancy registry is currently collecting additional cases. Since Enbrel (etanercept) is prescribed for rheumatoid arthritis and pregnancy generally improves the symptoms related to rheumatoid arthritis, it is reasonable to stop this medication once pregnant.
