The dose should be atleast 8 hrs before delievery to avoid respiratory and cns depression of new born..before this i dont think it poses much risk with ocassional use and better to go with IM route

No. Not safe. Can cause withdrawl symptoms, fetal death and can pose teratogenic risk.

Tramadol crosses placenta and hence can cause withdrawal symptoms in newborns

Not safe
