Using teeth whiteners & mouthwash

Is it safe to use whitening strips or whitening mouthwash like Listerine whitening? I'm a dental assistant and remember being told in school pregnant women cannot bleach teeth. I went to some products websites and theres no info listed for pregnant women.. Im going to ask my doctor but wanted to see if anyone knew anything for sure was safe.
