In brief: Yes

Monotherapy (taking only one medication ) is better then polytherapy during the pregnancy.
Folic acid is recommended to decrease the chance of structural abnormalities in a baby. Most anticonvulsants may decrease the fertility, but people certainly can get pregnant. Valproic acid is the medication which is known to cause structural abnormalities more often, and also may cause decreased iq.
