In brief: Most likely

Ipratropium bromide is the ingredient in atrovent, (ipratropium) an inhaler used for asthma and copd.
It is fda category b, meaning there are no studies proving it dangerous to humans or animals. Of course, in pregnancy or nursing, like all drugs, use this only if and when it is absolutely necessary.

In brief: Pregnancy Yes

The drug is likely safe in pregnancy (category b; animal studies show no risk).
The drug does not have enough data in breast feeding to make a safe statement.
