After unsuccessfully trying to conceive a child for years, Rhonda and Gerry, an American couple, hired a surrogate mother in India. A short documentary for the iPad, this video is part of a feature story package on the phenomenon of outsourcing pregnancies via commercial surrogacy, a booming part of the medical tourism industry in India.

The exhibition “The Global Baby: Our Family, Made In India” was selected for Berlin Fotofestival’s multimedia special “Explore New Media”.
