The low molecular weight of cetirizine makes it highly likely to cross the placental barrier during pregnancy. Cetirizine is an active metabolite of hydoxyzine (a first generation antihistamine), which is generally considered safe for use during pregnancy. Cetirizine would not be anticipated to cause harm either.
