In brief: Different ways

Generally clotting disorders during pregnancy can and should be treated to help prevent any adverse events for baby.
Even in the face of such treatments, fetal growth restriction (small babies) and placental blood flow problems may develop. If you have a strong family or personal history of blood clots, get the disorder diagnosed and treated before conception if possible.

In brief: May not

You should consult with a hematologist and know the nature of disorder, only then the risk can be determined.
