China is seeing a boom in people seeking fertility treatments after the end of its decades long one-child policy. 

It's turned the country into one of the world's biggest markets for in vitro fertilization, or IVF.

However, restrictions on egg donations and surrogacy are sending many overseas to Southeast Asia or the US for treatment.
