Dr. Nayana Patel, works with her assistant as they screen profiles of egg donors in her Akanksha IVF and surrogacy center in Anand, Gujarat, India on 10th December 2012. Surrogacy clients pour into Anand from across the world pursuing Dr Patel's expertise on the process, and they keep in touch with her and the progress of the pregnancies via the internet and phone. While 15% of couples are infertile globally, only 6% of infertility cases require surrogacy as a last option. Photo by Suzanne Lee / Marie-Claire France
