I'm lucky enough to be 12 weeks pregnant with twins after ICSI IVF. My father is a strict Catholic is keeping his religious views to himself (for now) but I know he's not happy about how his grandchildren were conceived. My husband was divorced when we got married which my father also wasn't happy about and almost refused to come to our wedding- but he did eventually come round and now loves his son in law to bits. I hope the same will be true for our children but it is so upsetting. I used to consider myself a Catholic but decided to walk away from it when we found out we'd need IVF to conceive- the same week the current 'liberal' Pope condemned it- it seemed like a sign somehow and I won't be part of a church my children are not welcome in. Has anyone else had to deal with family members reacting badly to their infertility and decision to use science to help treat it? Did you find an effective way to tackle it?
