Reporter Anja Popp investigates the surrogate pregnancy market in Georgia, where wealthy couples can have multiple babies at once. The market is incredibly unregulated and vulnerable women are exploited there.

At the edge of Europe, Georgia has a booming surrogacy market. Prospective parents from all over the globe turn to low-price clinics, where protection of the surrogate mothers is not enforced.

In the Black Sea city of Batumi, Anja meets a wealthy mother caring for 21 babies under two years old. An agency organised all the births using surrogates who were vetted and she doesn’t know who the women are.
