There are contraindications for certain individuals on this listing, but Immunocal is not contraindicated for pregnant women. So, yes, it would not only be safe to drink Immunocal during pregnancy, it would be beneficial. Here's why:
Dr. Jimmy Gutman, who wrote "Glutathione- Your Key To Health", recommends glutathione augmentation, which Immunocal accomplishes, in his chapter on pregnancy, lactation, and childbirth.
One of these reasons are glutathione's role in embryonic, fetal, and placental development. Another reason he recommends this is because many common complications of pregnancy coincide with low glutathione levels.
