In brief: Entirely

Yes, riboflavin, also known as vitamin b2, is entirely safe to take when pregnant or breastfeeding.
B2 is essential for cell growth & repair, red blood cell production, immune function, nervous system function and healthy vision and skin. See http://www.Vitamin-mineral-info.Com/vitamin-b2-riboflavin-benefits-signs-of-deficiency.Php.

In brief: Yes

Riboflavin is also known as vitamin b2.
Taking a separate supplement isn't usually necessary, as most of the b family (b1, b2, b6, b12, folate, (folic acid) etc.) are included in a multi-vitamin or prescription prenatal vitamin.
