Yes, Xanax can be harmful if taken during pregnancy.
"Xanax (Alprazolam) has been assigned to pregnancy category D by the FDA.
An increased risk of congenital malformations in humans has been suggested with use of other benzodiazepines, although small studies have not implicated alprazolam. Withdrawal symptoms have been described in neonates whose mothers took alprazolam during pregnancy. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Alprazolam use is considered contraindicated during pregnancy. "

Talk with your doctor about taking Xanax while pregnant. If at all possible it would be safer for your baby if you stopped taking it. All the best.
