"Digoxin has been assigned to FDA pregnancy category C by the FDA. Animal studies failed to reveal evidence of teratogenicity. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Digoxin has been used successfully to treat maternal congestive heart failure and arrhythmias and fetal arrhythmias throughout gestation without reports of fetal harm, however, digoxin should be given during pregnancy only when benefit outweighs risk."
Its use during pregnancy has not been studied however it has been used without harm to the baby. Digoxin should only be used during pregnancy if the benefits outweigh the risks - talk with your doctor.
