A woman from San Diego currently holds the U.S. record for having the most number of surrogate babies, a total of ten babies in ten years.
Yvonne Heller, 40, had her first surrogate experience at age 30.
It's a blessing to know that there are ten happy kids who are loved and cherished because of what I did. It's a wonderful feeling, Heller told the National Enquirer.
I always loved every minute of being pregnant. I never suffered from morning sickness or swollen ankles, never had any problems and I thought: This is a way I could recapture that wonderful feeling and help someone else at the same time.
Yvonne helps couples who are not able to conceive through the Baby Miracles agency based in San Diego and maintains that it is more of a labor of love than money.
Heller was advised not to have anymore children, as all the babies were delivered via caesarian section and posed a health risk.
However, that doesn't stop her from helping childless couples. She is now an expert adviser at Baby Miracles and helps match surrogates with potential parents.
