In brief: Possibly
It has been shown that women with kidney disease (example diabetic nephropathy) have difficulty becoming pregnant.
The worse the kidney disease, the more unlikely a woman becomes pregnant. For those woman who achieve pregnancy, there is a high likelihood the baby survives. However during the pregnancy, the mother's renal disease may worsen, she may develop preeclampsia or she develops chronic htn.
