Is it safe to use hydrogen peroxide on a cut while pregnant?

In brief: Yes

But use it half strength.
It is not the best cleanser for wounds, though. A mild dilute soap is fine.

In brief: Yes

There should be no concern to your baby from the topical application of Hydrogen peroxide.
I would make sure the cut is not infected though, keep it clean and see a doctor if it is not healing well.
