China faces potential baby boom

Country could see up to two million extra births per year as controversial one-child policy is relaxed.

    Changes in China's controversial one-child policy are being introduced across the country. Couples will be allowed to have two children, if one of the parents is an only child. 

    The move could result in up to two million extra births per year in the first few years.
