In brief: Yes

Protonix (pantoprazole) is classified as a category b drug during pregnancy, this means that no animal or human studies show risks or not enough data is available to classify it as a lower risk category.
During breast feeding it falls into L1 or a safe drug based on existing studies in breast feeding mothers.
