Safe, But...

Make sure that it is not made with raw unpasteurized eggs!

Bearnaise sauce made with raw eggs is not safe for pregnant women to eat according to WebMd.  BabyMed and the American Pregnancy Association state that raw eggs may contain bacteria such as E. coli or Salmonella, which may be harmful to both a pregnant woman and her baby. However, bearnaise sauce made with pasteurized eggs is safe for pregnant women to eat.
