An almost duplicate post. Drugs.com have a fantastic database and I find it useful to read the information for professionals: https://www.drugs.com/pro/xanax.html
From the comprehensive information:
"Risk of Fetal Harm
Benzodiazepines can potentially cause fetal harm when administered to pregnant women. If Xanax is used during pregnancy, or if the patient becomes pregnant while taking this drug, the patient should be apprised of the potential hazard to the fetus. Because of experience with other members of the benzodiazepine class, Xanax is assumed to be capable of causing an increased risk of congenital abnormalities when administered to a pregnant woman during the first trimester. Because use of these drugs is rarely a matter of urgency, their use during the first trimester should almost always be avoided.
The possibility that a woman of childbearing potential may be pregnant at the time of institution of therapy should be considered. Patients should be advised that if they become pregnant during therapy or intend to become pregnant they should communicate with their physicians about the desirability of discontinuing the drug.
