No studies on vitamin K1 have been done on pregnant women. Normally, very little vitamin K gets transferred from the mother's blood to the unborn baby's blood during pregnancy. But experts do not know if excess vitamin K1 will harm an unborn baby. If you are pregnant, you should be sure that the doctor who prescribes vitamin K1 for you knows that you are pregnant. You should take it only if you clearly need it.
