BEIJING: China's decision to allow all married couples to have two children is driving a surge in demand for fertility treatment among older women, putting heavy pressure on clinics and breaking down past sensitivities, and even shame, about the issue.
The rise in in vitro fertilization points to the lost dreams of many parents who long wanted a second child, but were prevented by a strict population control policy in place for more than 30 years.
That, in turn, is shifting prevailing attitudes in China regarding fertility treatments formerly a matter of such sensitivity that couples were reluctant to tell even their parents or other family members that they were having trouble conceiving.
"More and more women are coming to ask to have their second child," said Dr. Liu Jiaen, who runs a private hospital in Beijing treating infertility through IVF , in which an egg and sperm are combined in a laboratory dish and the resulting embryo transferred to a woman's uterus.
Liu estimated that the numbers of women coming to him for IVF had risen by 20 per cent since the relaxation of the policy, which came into effect at the start of the year.
pathetic rules...but breeding like pigs...

As per bilateral business agreement and co-operation with your country, if the rush to get second child is unmanageable at your hospital, please send those couples to INDIA to our unmanageable No.of fertility centres which are under utilised so that you can send the finished goods and we can send the beautiful babies as exchange offer so that we can save the foreign exchange finance burden. We offer surrogate mothers also. Please think about it. If you want leftist oriented babies we can arrange the hospitals at KERALA and WEST BENGAL as first line and BIHAR as second line.
motherhood indeed is the best
