In brief: Options

If your heart condition makes it too dangerous for you deliver a baby, you could consider having a gestational carrier carry your baby for you.
Of course, this is a big decision, not to be taken lightly. Good luck.

In brief: Genetics

Keep in mind that hcm is a genetic condition and there will be a 50% chance you will pass the abnormal gene to your offspring.
You may want to consider this when making your decision. Adoption is a viable option.
