Hydroquinone and Pregnancy. Do I have a risk of birth defect on my baby?

I've been using Obagi 5, hydroquinone 4% over one year. Now I found out I am one month pregnant and stopped using it. Do I have a risk of birth defect on my baby?
Pregnancy and hydroquinone creams
I would cease all prescription topical creams now that you know you are pregnant, unless they are specifically recommended by a knowledgeable physician. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles
Obagi and Pregnancy
We do not recommend patients to use this system during pregnancy, due to the hydroquinone. At least you are in a very early stage of pregnancy, but I would talk to my OBGYN about my concerns. Best of luck with your pregnancy.
