New Documentary Follows Pregnant Women in ‘Unofficial Surrogacy Capital’ of the U.S.

September 30, 2019

(Idaho Statesman) – Idaho is a hub for surrogacy. People come to Idaho from around the nation and the world, hoping to become parents with the help of a surrogate. The increased demand created a cottage industry in the Treasure Valley in recent years. A new documentary, “Made in Boise,” by filmmaker Beth Aala, chronicles what it’s like for the women who agree to carry babies for intended parents. “Four women find purpose carrying babies for strangers in Boise, Idaho — the unregulated and unofficial ‘surrogacy capital’ of the United States — and encounter complexities along the way,” says an advertisement for the show.
