Do surrogate mothers pass on DNA?

Also, the baby's own blood passes through its body – not the blood of its surrogate mom. However, there is a possibility that some DNA could be transferred from the woman to the fetus that she is carrying. And vice versa, from the child to the mother. This exchanged DNA will have almost no effect.

Similarly one may ask, are surrogate mothers allowed to keep the baby?

Mother's rights. The woman who gives birth is always treated as the legal mother and has the right to keep the child - even if they're not genetically related. Surrogacy contracts aren't enforced by UK law, even if a contract has been signed with the intended parents and they've paid for any expenses.

Are surrogate mothers related to baby?

This type of surrogacy is typically only used if the biological mother's egg and/or the biological father's sperm are unable to be used. With gestational surrogacy, the surrogate's eggs are not used at all. Therefore, the child will not be related to the surrogate biologically.
