e county maternity hospital are filled with lists of multiple pregnancies.
Dr Guo Gui Fen turns the handwritten pages slowly and points to the name of each mother who conceived twins or even triplets. "We've seen a huge rise in the number of twins in recent years," she says.
"That's all because of the fertility drugs that are easily available."
China introduced its one-child policy in 1980 because it was worried about its ability to feed a growing population.
In towns and cities, the policy is often strictly enforced.
Some women are sterilised after they give birth to their first child.
Others have been forced to have abortions if they get pregnant for a second time.
Couples face heavy fines if they go ahead and have a second child.
There are some exemptions, however, with families from ethnic minorities allowed more than one child.
Some rural families are also permitted to try for a son if their first child is a daughter.
But those Chinese who are limited to just one child increasingly resent the policy.
In modern China, more and more people object to the state telling them what to do.
On 19 May, the residents of Bobai, a town in China's southern Guanxi Province, rose up against the policy.
Communist Party officials started going house to house to collect fines for having a second child.
According to reports, the officials tried to intimidate rule-breakers into paying, but locals fought back by burning cars and destroying official buildings.
Many Chinese would prefer to avoid this kind of confrontation with the state, which is still hugely powerful.
That is why so many choose to take fertility drugs in the hope of a multiple pregnancy.
If you have all your children in one go in China, you do not have to worry about a fine and a fight with the Communist Party.
