Trying to have a child after a kidney transplant

I know some of you are medical savvy,help me out on this one

My cousin Amanda's roommate has gotten it into her head that she wants to have another child (she's single and on PA,but that's a whole other story)
She had a transplant in 2007,and is on maintenance meds (and will be indefinitely)
She claims the doctors have given her the go ahead to try,and that her meds will just have to be changed up so they don't hurt the fetus
Now a regular pregnancy can be hard on the system,what would one be like when you have a donor kidney in you? Would a doctor tell you it'd be fine to get pregnant again?
She's just doing ok living with this new kidney. They tell her another transplant is in her future before she's 40 (27 now)
Please don't recat,I want this answered if possible
