This is something best discussed with your OB doc and your Dr who treats the HAE. Here is what the literature says:
Pregnancy Category C. Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Berinert. It is not known whether Berinert can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Berinert should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed. In a retrospective case collection study, 20 pregnant women ranging in age from 20 to 35 years received Berinert with repeated doses up to 3,500 units per attack; these women reported no complications during delivery and no harmful effects on their 34 neonates.
Labor and Delivery
The safety and effectiveness of Berinert administration prior to or during labor and delivery have not been established. Use only if clearly needed.
It is not known whether Berinert is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, use only if clearly needed when treating a nursing woman.
