MADE IN BOISE

Co-Presented with WGBH

MADE IN BOISE explores the unique world of surrogacy in the most unexpected of places. As the number of surrogate births surges across the country, the epicenter of the movement is Boise, Idaho, where hundreds of women are choosing to be surrogates. For gay couples, single men, and women who struggle with infertility, this booming yet unregulated industry is often the last resort to becoming a parent. Filmmaker Beth Aala intimately follows four surrogates, and the parents whose children they carry, as they navigate the rigors of pregnancy and the mixed feelings of their own families through this unique process.
