In brief: Not necessarily

In a study 105 women had a total of 247 pregnancies, resulting in 182 live births.
Cesarean section rate(36%) was greater than the general population.Did not show previously reported increased preeclampsia, preterm delivery, intrauterine growth restriction, pregnancy-induced hypertension, stillbirth, spontaneous abortion/perinatal mortality.60% showed new neurofibromas and 52% enlargement of nfs.

In brief: Yes:

Pregnant neurofibromatosis patients constitute a high-risk group, in danger of developing life-threatening complications.
However, with proper antenatal care, most pregnant neurofibromatosis patients can deliver safety if the pregnancy continues beyond the first trimester.
