You will need medications and psychoeducation  ( ideally with your partner) to understand the normal bodily changes accompanying pregnancy. Also there are some medications which needs to be avoided during pregnancy. Especially the antipsychotic medications. So I suggest you to have a detailed discussion with your doctor before planning for a child

Schizophrenia is a genetic disease. the disease might be transferred to your offspring also.
