In brief: Yes

Women with crohn's or ulcerative colitis can have normal pregnancies.
However, be sure to let your gastroenterologist know of your intentions to insure your medications are safe during pregnancy.

In brief: Discuss with doctors

Many patients with crohn's go through pregnancy and childbirth successfully.
Consult with your gastroenterologist and obstetrician before planning your pregnancy if at all possible. Their advice will help you to evaluate the risks related to your crohn's meds, as well as any risks regarding vaginal delivery.
