I went on a deep dive into how different religions view IVF. I discovered it’s not so much about the process, but the sanctity of family. It’s an interesting concept when thinking about my own faith and journey with IVF. I have had amazing support and been scorned by others for going through this process. Through it all, I have contemplated what being a mother is about.
