'Banning surrogacy takes away my support system'

The Indian government recently announced a ban on surrogate services for foreign couples wanting babies, saying it was "exploitative".

But many surrogate mothers in India have protested against the move saying the money they earn makes a big difference to their lives.

Devi Parmar, 27, is carrying a baby for a British couple. "Surrogacy is a great support system for us," she says.
