In brief: Contact your PCP!

Dear patient, as per food & drug administration (fda), Lisinopril may cause birth defects or fetal death if you take it while you are pregnant.
If you think you may be pregnant, contact your primary care physician (pcp) right away. It is not known if Lisinopril is found in breast milk. Do not breast-feed while taking lisinopril.

In brief: No

Ideally, Lisinopril (and other ace-inhibitors, usually end in -pril) should stopped before trying to get pregnant.
But if you find out you are pregnant and are taking it, stop taking it and call your doctor. Lisinopril can cause some congenital malformations in early pregnancy and kidney problems in later pregnancy. Babies exposed to Lisinopril will need extra monitoring mainly with ultrasounds.
