Surrogates remain the baby’s legal mother until a parental order is granted, which can take months.
But a survey has now revealed 69 per cent of surrogate mothers feel the law – which has existed since 1990 – should be changed.
Surrogacy UK, a support network, has described the law as being ‘outdated and in dire need of reform’.
The current laws are under review by the Law Commission, which is to publish its updated proposals in the coming weeks.
The survey by Surrogacy UK was conducted on 102 surrogate mothers, The Times reports.
Only two of the women who were polled revealed they thought they should be the legal parents at birth.
