Most antidotes have not been adequately studied in pregancy and hold a Pregnancy Risk Category 'C' by the FDA. However, there are a few antidotes that hold a category 'D' or 'X' rating (contraindicated).
In most cases, the benefits of short-term use probably outweigh the risk, especially when accounting for the health and prognosis of the mother.
