Become a surrogate


Contact us if you would like to find out more about becoming a surrogate with Brilliant Beginnings, or read more below

We work with surrogates from all over the UK


If you are looking for a match, our unique UK Surrogacy Pathway helps you confirm that surrogacy is right for you, matches you with intended parents you will have a great relationship with, and supports you through your surrogacy journey.

If you have offered to be a surrogate for someone you already know, perhaps a sister, friend or work colleague, we can provide advice, information and practical help.

If you want to become a Brilliant Surrogate, the first step is to check you meet our basic requirements. You need to:

Be fit, healthy and over 21

Our surrogates are physically and mentally healthy, have a BMI between 19 and 30 and are over 21 years old.

Have already had a baby

We want to make sure you know what to expect from pregnancy, and feel confident you can carry a baby safely.

Be willing to have fertility treatment

You need to be prepared to have fertility treatment at a licensed clinic in the UK in order to get pregnant.

Be well supported

Support from your partner, if you have one, or another close friend or family member, is very important.

Be a non-smoker

If you smoke now, you need to have given up completely for six months before you can apply.

Complete screening and preparation

To become a Brilliant Surrogate you will also need to complete our screening and preparation process.

Teresa decided to become a surrogate with Brilliant Beginnings after she found out her brother was unable to conceive naturally. This is her story.

Being a Brilliant Surrogate

I rate Brilliant Beginnings for their attention to detail, matching skills and support.  If becoming a surrogate is something you are considering I would highly recommend them.


I chose Brilliant Beginnings because they just ‘got me’.  They understood my priorities, and were respectful of me and my family set up.
