Days in China's Child-seeking Town
Since the one-child policy ended in 2016, demand for fertility treatment in China has grown. Residents of rural areas travel to cities to receive treatment, staying at lodgings in districts that people call "child-seeking towns." Their reasons for treatment are diverse: Some hope for a second child or a son now that the policy has been abolished, while others feel compelled by the culture of their villages. This episode follows a year in the life of families seeking to bring a new child into the world.
