Diabetics- pregnancy

We are consulting a gynaecologist near home. Wife is having gestational diabetes. Doctors suggested she would give metformin to control it. Is it safe to give tablets during pregnancy. I heard that tablets are not safe for baby growth and it will harm the baby. Insulin is better during pregnancy
