Yes: A great deal of the risk comes from the general condition of the patient, other diseases present (hypertension, diabetes, etc.), and other factors such as smoking. The lupus does play a role but if the disease is well controlled without serious involvement such as brain or kidney inflammation, patients can do quite well throughout pregnancy and delivery (c-section or vaginal).
