If you have indications or something to look for specifically they are still done, but most places don't like doing routine screening mammograms on pregnant or nursing women. They're a lot harder to read when a woman is pregnant, harder still while breastfeeding. The amount of radiation is low so it's not a huge safety issue, it's just hard to interpret while you are pregnant or breastfeeding and have all that extra tissue density.
