Yes, Amoxiclav is safe during pregnancy. The active ingredients of amoxiclav are Amoxicillin and Clavulanic Acid. FDA has put this drug under the pregnancy category B which means, there was no evidence of harm on the development of the baby. It is used to treat a skin infection, bacterial infection, urinary tract infections, lower respiratory tract infections, and bacterial infections of the respiratory tract.

A reproduction study has been performed in rats and mice at doses up to 2000 mg/kg and reported no evidence of harm to the fetus because of amoxiclav.

Women taking Amoxiclav are advised to notify their gynaecologist if they become pregnant or intend to become pregnant during therapy or are breastfeeding an infant.
