In brief: Essential.
Adequate/normal thyroid function is essential to getting pregnant and carrying a pregnancy to term. In fact, the most ancient pregnancy test was reported from ancient greece, where astute early physicians noticed that young women who missed their periods and had a slightly enlarged thyroid gland (goiter) were pregnant.
The fetus depends on maternal thyroid action until 10 weeks.
