Laura, Tracey, Alyssa and Teresa spoke with online magazine, Mother & Baby

It is not often that an opportunity presents itself for a group of surrogates to collectively share their experiences outside of their support network and surrogate community. So when we were approached by online magazine Mother & Baby to talk about surrogacy in the UK, our team of experienced surrogates were happy to get involved!

What we spoke about

Experienced Brilliant Beginnings surrogates Laura, Tracey, Alyssa and Teresa (T) got together to provide insight into the reality of being a surrogate and completing a family for someone else, along with dispelling some common myths around the topic. 

Relationships with intended parents and personal stories

The team covered everything; from coping with reactions of others and the relationship with intended parents and the babies born, to the benefits of using an agency, injecting their own stories of what these experiences were like for each of them as individuals.

Benefits of working with a surrogacy agency

Everyone had much to say about the benefits of a supported pathway with Brilliant Beginnings and NGA Law.

“Brilliant beginnings does a really good job of taking the time to really get to know the surrogate and IP’s so it’s so easy going on both sides.” – Alyssa
