Fetus depends on maternal thyroid only in early pregnancy ... If mother found to have altered thyroid studies if brought under control initially itself will have least effect on growing fetus ...if not
complications in mother miscarriage ,  Anaemia  in pregnancy, pre eclampsia , abruptio placenta and post partum hemorrhage. 
Fetus might have premature birth, low birth weight and increased neonatal respiratory distress.
