This article is a theological reflection upon the experience of undergoing a treatment cycle to conceive a child through IVF. It sets the techniques and medical procedures associated with the new reproductive technologies in the context of wider social, cultural and theological conversations rather than isolating them as specialist medical concerns or abstract ethical dilemmas.
