A British surrogate mother of twins has said the intended mother rejected one of the babies because she was born with a disability.

The intended mother, also British, is said to have taken the healthy boy, but refused to accept his twin sister because she has a severe muscular condition called Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy.

The surrogate mother, known only as Jenny, told The Sun: "I'll never forget what she said on the phone.

"I remember her saying to me, 'She'd be a f****** dribbling cabbage! Who would want to adopt her? No one would want to adopt a disabled child'.

"I was shocked."

Jenny and her partner Mark signed a surrogacy deal with the intended parents in return for £12,000 expenses.

Two embryos were implanted into Jenny's womb and a few weeks later she learnt she was carrying twins.

The girl's disability was diagnosed after Jenny had given birth.

"I got into surrogacy because I wanted to help a mother who couldn't have children," she said.

"But I feel very angry because of what they've done to her."
