Malaria prevention

My wife and myself will be visiting Zambia in December, and being in a malaria region we want to take preventative measures. My question to you is, that she might be pregnant by that time and we would just like to know what malaria medication pregnant women may take? Also, how is a pregnant women influenced by a country like Zambia’ s shots to be taken i.e. yellow fever?

Kind regards
Ruane
