In brief: No, however.
However, if you get an active flare up/infection, make sure you get prompt evaluation and treatment while it is still localized and small.

In brief: No.
Pilonidal cyst is well away from the birth canal, so it should not affect pregnancy and childbirth.
Your doctor can help with management during pregnancy, especially if antibiotics are considered indicated.
