Yes of course. You can have a healthy pregnancy and child. The only risk is if you have an outbreak while you go into labor. If there is an outbreak then you have to have a c-section. The baby cannot go through the birth canal with an open sore. But you can still have a normal birth also. I think they give you medication before you deliver to keep the infection levels down and they test your birth canal for any signs of herpes. If there are no signs then you are ok to have a vaginal birth. I am pretty sure that having herpes does not affect your fertility and ability to get pregnant or carry.
