In brief: Yes
Ventolin hfa is safe for use during pregnancy & lactation based on data from several studies.
The nhlbi guidelines for asthma management (epr-3) also recommend albuterol (the medication contained in ventolin hfa) as the preferred quick relief medication for asthma in pregnancy. Please consult a lung specialist as asthma can worsen during pregnancy requiring additional precautions.

In brief: Yes
It is important to control asthma during a pregnancy.
About 1/3 of moms worsen, 1/3 remain stable, and 1/3 improve during pregnancy. Talk to your OB and your asthma doctor and make sure they're working together for your care.
