Here is some information that may be useful
Immunotherapy is  not initiated during pregnancy.

If pregnancy occurs during the “build-up” phase and the patient is receiving a dose unlikely to be therapeutic, discontinuation of immunotherapy should be considered. Alternatively IT may be maintained without increasing the dose.
Allergen immunotherapy maintenance doses can be continued at the same dose during pregnancy.
All best, h
