Your wife obviously had a severe infection to be hospitalised and given IV Augmentin.
Augmentin has the FDA Pregnancy Category B
"Animal reproduction studies have failed to demonstrate a risk to the
fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women"
There are times when a doctor has to weigh up risks and benefits of giving a drug during pregnancy. Given the nature of your wifes infection the doctor has decided the benefits of Augmentin outweighed any risk to the baby.
