Answer

In the name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātuh

 

It is permissible for her not to fast if she fears some harm which she thinks will most likely affect her and or her baby.

 (Bahashti Zewar, Pg.17, 3rd Part, Maktabah Thanwy)

And Allāh Ta῾āla Knows Best
Wassalāmu ῾alaykum
