Laboring for US citizenship
Increasing numbers of Chinese women seek to give birth in North America
The business of helping pregnant Chinese women to give birth in the United States has attracted an increasing number of people to the market. However, one insider predicts it will come to an end in five years.
The enterprise, which began 20 years ago in Taiwan province, has become popular on the Chinese mainland.
For Jia Zijun, a Chinese American who returned to the mainland from the US three years ago to start the business, the enthusiasm of Chinese people for having a baby in the US so it could have American citizenship was “crazy”.
