Advice On Pregnancy & Bipolar

I was diagnosed with bipolar about 9 years ago. My husband and I are considering starting a family. Currenly I am on medication that will seriously harm the baby. I tried posting this in the bipolar forum but no one responded. I thought if I came to this forum I might have better luck. I so much desire to have children but frankly it scares me to death. I am scared about going off my meds, about passing on the disorder, about not being able to breastfeed since the rate for post partum is 50-80% for me. I need advice about evrything. Can anyone help me?
