This super-surrogate is addicted to being pregnant – and has given birth four times, despite saying she doesn't ever want a family of her own.

Annie Peverelle (40) from Rugby in Warwickshire, England, has been a surrogate to three families over the past six years.

In January she gave birth to her fourth baby, for Amanda and Jason McKeane, after giving birth to their first daughter, Effie, four years ago.

Annie was introduced to the couple through charity Surrogacy UK – Amanda (42) was left infertile after being diagnosed with endometrial cancer when she was 34.

Annie and Amanda are now great friends, who meet up every other month as their bond has become stronger over the years.

"I adore being pregnant, it's addictive. I have never had morning sickness and the last three labours were no longer than two hours and very easy,” Annie explains.

"I love the feeling of growing a new life for someone who can’t do it themselves and the thrill of seeing a positive pregnancy test.

"I just feel really good while carrying a baby and I’m fortunate enough to have no cravings or sickness.

"Seeing that first scan and feeling the little kicks are just amazing."

Annie, an admin worker, is now planning to help give another couple a sibling for their child before she stops being a surrogate all together.

Talking about why she first started, Annie said:  "I was desperate to experience pregnancy, but I didn't want to have a baby.

“A colleague suggested surrogacy as a joke but that weekend I couldn’t get it off my mind, so I researched it and before I knew it I was at a social event with other surrogates and parents-to-be.

“I have never looked back since. It isn’t just helping people that I love but also the friendships I have formed from Surrogacy UK.

“I get the privilege of seeing my friends fall in love with their baby from the second they hold them.”

Amanda, who is a veterinary nurse, and Jason were desperate to start a family and after miscarrying her first at seven weeks, she was unable to become pregnant again.

After two years of investigations, Amanda was diagnosed with endometrial cancer and had a year to freeze her embryos before undergoing a hysterectomy.

"Surrogacy was our only option left. We froze 14 embryos and started attending socials and kept bumping into Annie, who was pregnant with her first surrogate baby.”

Surrogacy UK host events throughout the year which gives surrogates the chance to meet parents-to-be, before choosing who they want to carry a baby for.
