In brief: No!
No matter what your health situation is, nobody should pressure you to do anything you are not comfortable with.
Now if you both want a child, your ability to do so will strongly depend on what type of heart disease you have. There are many types of heart disease that do not preclude you from completing a successful pregnancy. Consult with your cardiologist.
