Default emdr during pregnancy

Is it contraindicated to do EMDR during pregnancy? I'm concerned that a)abreaction might induce miscarriage b) trauma processing might lead to the transmission of loads of stress hormones through the placenta, and thus might be harmful to the fetus. If so, it seems like a bit of a catch 22. In other words, if a client comes to me, pregnant, wanting to clear a previous miscarriage or otherwise traumatic birthing experience---should I tell her she needs to wait until after she has the baby to clear the trauma? Any insights or suggestions on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
