"Some have spent money on education for their children and the couple are so happy they've received a baby," she says.
"They're going and doing something pot-luck, often on the basis of a cheaper price or something being easier”

Dr Jackson Kirkman-Brown, senior lecturer in human reproductive biology in the School of Clinical and Experimental Medicine at the University of Birmingham, is concerned that widely unregulated surrogacy industries could pose health risks.
"They're entering into, very often unregulated healthcare. There isn't the regulatory framework governing what they're doing.
"So really they're going and doing something pot-luck, often on the basis of a cheaper price or something being easier," he says.
There are not only medical warnings but according to leading surrogacy lawyer Natalie Gamble, legal issues too.
"The first hurdle is immigration, and in many cases the conflicting laws between the UK and India will mean that the child is born stateless," she says.
"The application for a discretionary passport can be long and difficult and parents should expect to be stuck in India for several months following the birth.
"They will also need to apply for a parental order to be recognised as the parents in the UK.
"The application has to be made within six months of the birth and, if the arrangement is a commercial one, will be heard in the High Court.
"There is an increasing track record of applications like this being granted, but the court will look at every case carefully and individually," she says.
Despite such warnings, many of the couples at Dr Kadam's presentation say they are seriously considering surrogacy in India.
One woman tells me: "I'm here to be a mother
"I've tried for many years to create a family and there's just something in me that can't let go.
"Sometimes I wish the feelings would go away but they don't.
"It's just this real desire to put the meaning into my life.
"I've got a wonderful partner but I just need to be a mother and jump into puddles again, to do something with my love."
