Welcome to this forum.

Actually insufficient data are available on zopiclone to assess its safety during human pregnancy and lactation, therefore the use of zopiclone during pregnancy is not recommended. Studies in animals have not shown evidence of an increased occurrence of foetal damage.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
