Should people with severe mental illness have children?

One of my dearest friends was diagnosed with bipolar disorder a few years ago after having a series of break downs and a few suicide attempts. She was hospitalized for about a month and put on lithium. The lithium seems to have done the trick and she has been fine and functional for about 3 years. Last year she met and married “the man of her dreams.” The two of them seem very happy, but knowing her as well as I do I have my doubts. Now they are talking about having children. I don’t know what to say to her when she asks me what I think about it all. I am really worried about her ability to handle the stress of marriage and motherhood.
