No, not that I am aware... do you have a pre-existing condition that requires cortisone or have you heard somewhere that it is important?

The decision to take cortisone during pregnancy is controversial because it has not been medically proven that it is safe for use according to the standards of the United States Food and Drug Administration.
It's important to remember that the potential side effects of cortisone and other medications on your unborn baby are always a risk. Therefore it is imperative to consult with your doctor about beginning the use of any medications when you become pregnant.
