In brief: No

1st, laptops generate a significant amount of heat on the bottom and that would not be good for the pregnancy.
2d, it is best to avoid any risk of direct exposure to any electrical energy from or to the computer. Best is for her to sit in a chair with the laptop on a table. There are lap desks available in the marketplace and these would definitely be safer than having the laptop on her belly.
