There have no been any studies in humans, so there isn't any data. I did find a case report which had a positive outcome, but not much else. Nothing with a negative outcome as yet.

From the PI Sheet :

Aripiprazole has a pregnancy category of C. In animal studies aripiprazole produced

developmental toxicity that included possible teratogenic effects in rabbits and rats but

there are no controlled studies in pregnant women and no data on whether it crosses the

placenta. There is no third trimester study data. Therefore aripiprazole should only be

used during pregnancy if the benefits outweigh the potential risk to the fetus.

Pregnancy category C

I know this is all really scary. You need to decide between yourself and you doctors, plural, what is best for you and your baby. There are many women who take category C medications while pregnant and have no complications. There are many who choose not to take them but that also comes with risks.

This study suggests that Clozaril [clozapine] may be an option. I couldn't find more on it, though.

Reviewed studies show that olanzapine and clozapine apparently do not increase the teratogenic risk if administered to pregnant women...

Sorry I can't find more information.
