 Most prolific surrogate mother-world record set by Carole Horlock
 
  STEVENAGE, England -- Surrogate mother Carole Horlock, 42, has delivered 12 babies in 13 years, including triplets last March-setting the world record for the Most prolific surrogate mother.
   Carole Horlock: "When I first started being a surrogate I expected to do it once," she said. "I hadn't looked past that. But I enjoyed it so much. Before I actually had given birth to the baby I wanted to do it again." (enlarge photo)

   
She told the ABC News program "20/20." : "When I first started being a surrogate I expected to do it once," she said. "I hadn't looked past that. But I enjoyed it so much. Before I actually had given birth to the baby I wanted to do it again."

   Surrogates receive an average $25,000 to $30,000 for their services, "20/20" said.

    The downsides include in-vitro fertilization, morning sickness, bed rest, Caesarean sections and stretch marks.

     Carole Horlock has parlayed her extreme surrogate status into additional profit by selling her story to tabloids newspapers.

    But sometimes the headlines have turned nasty, she said.

    "You do it once or twice and you're an angel. You do it time and time again, you're a monster," she said. "If it's a good deed the first time, why doesn't it continue being a good deed?"

   Horlock will make no demands on the parents of the triplets beyond requesting an annual letter and photograph to let her know how they are doing.

    But her surrogacy experiences have not all been positive. Her father rarely speaks to her, distressed that she is effectively giving away his grandchildren.

    She said she finds satisfaction in surrogacy.

    "Some people are scientists, they are working toward a cure for cancer or they made the first airplane," she said.
     "But you know, at the end of my life, I can look back and say, you know, I made a difference to these people."
  
   Horlock is planning one final pregnancy before she retires.
