In brief: Yes, only if needed
An asthma attack is a bad thing to have happen during a pregnancy.
During asthma symptoms, a person's oxygen level drops, which means a further drop in oxygen for the baby inside. So, asthma should be controlled using medications. Pregnant women should bring all their medications to show both their primary care and ob-gyn doctors, to be sure the dosing is correct, and none are dangerous to a baby.
