Study reveals harsh toll of surrogacy

Surrogate moms often depressed, anxious after giving birth

Surrogate mothers often feel deep depression and separation anxiety after handing over their babies, a new study shows.

At a conference this week, a lawyer admitted that the legality of surrogacy agreements has never really been tested in court.
