If a woman converts to Judaism, are her children considered fully Jewish?

"Jewishness" is transmitted to children only if they were born after their mother converted. Otherwise they must go through conversion on their own. The conversion of such children can be done even while they are minors.

See the rules for a child's conversion in If Jewish parents adopt, is the child automatically Jewish?

If a woman is pregnant when converting, her fetus need not undergo conversion.
