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.

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