If a mother has moles and freckles does that mean her baby will have moles and freckles too?

In brief: Maybe

Our children are a combination of genetic information form both sides of parents.
If a child inherits moms skin information then yes that child could have lots of moles and freckles. If dad's side is different then child could inherit that tendency instead.
