In this chapter we witness the local and global encounters between North American patients and Czech doctors. The chapter witnesses the shifting role of the Czech clinic within this global care route, as they provide patient centered care. The Czech reproductive travel industry is profiting from its large supply of anonymous egg donors. I frame the entire industry as a global care route and trace global technologies, finance, images, and people enmeshed in “intimate labor” (Boris and Parreñas 2010).

Keywords:   intimate labor, global care route, Czech clinic, stratified reproduction, anonymous donation, white babies, resemblance, clinical encounter, patient activism
