In brief: Probiotics
Probiotics are considered safe but it would be recommended that you ingest them through yogurt instead of through a tablet or supplement.

In brief: Don't know
There is not much data on probiotics and other such supplements in pregnancy.
I think the safest way to ensure good bacteria symbiosis is to eat unprocessed food and to avoid overuse of antibiotics.
