In brief: Not a likely issue
Most adults have acquired lifelong immunity to the viruses of hfm in their own childhood, yet every few years a strain will affect local adults.
This issue has been looked at repeatedly over the past 50 + years and i find no record of any link to a birth defect: see www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/sites/gquery for access to database.All preg have a basic risk of some surprises but i don't see this as a cause.

In brief: Rare
Hand, foot and mouth disease is rare in healthy adults, so the risk of infection during pregnancy is very low.
If a pregnant woman gets hand, foot and mouth disease, the risk of complications is also very low. Complications are rare there is some limited evidence that catching hand, foot and mouth disease during pregnancy may result in miscarriage in very rare cases. There’s normally no risk to.
