In brief: Yes*
Halflytely is a laxative - fda class c , which means that animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks.
It is commonly used after c-sections and unlikely to be of major concern given the short duration of use.
