In brief: Spina bifida

Spina bifida is a very broad spectrum of disorders.
In most cases it does not prevent conception but if you have it you should have a prenatal evaluation to determine the severity of it and whether you might need to medications such as folic acid before conceiving.

In brief: Yes

Yes. But there may be other issues that impact your ability to carry a pregnancy to term, or other problems with delivery.
I would consult with your ob/gyn. Good luck.
