Why choose to be a surrogate with Brilliant Beginnings

Our years of surrogacy experience

Our surrogates have access to unique support. Our team has a wealth of surrogacy experience, and includes surrogates, parents through surrogacy, nurses, lawyers, counsellors, clinical psychologists and mediators. All are kind, caring individuals, who guide you through a proven and tested surrogacy process evolved over many years.

The ongoing practical and emotional support we offer

Our team are not volunteers so our surrogates and intended parents get our full attention at all times. We are always on-hand to offer practical or emotional support whenever you need it. It is literally our job to support you, not something we do in our spare time.

Our proven process

Our team will walk with you through your surrogacy process, making sure you confidently approach every milestone and your journey is coordinated and managed smoothly.

We provide an important safety net throughout

Our role is to steady your relationship through any ups and downs. We are there for you if you experience a failed transfer, miscarriage or pregnancy loss, or if any uncomfortable issues arise with your intended parents. We won’t let you down.

What our surrogates say about Brilliant Beginnings

Knowing that we had the full support of Brilliant Beginnings, an agency that truly stood up to all it is worth and have continued to support me and welcomed me into their hearts, was a true bonus.

The way you use profiling to match intended parents to potential surrogates is unique and second to none. I have been matched to two couples, on two different journeys, with you now and cannot thank you enough for the amazing friendships I have developed with both couples.

Why should you trust Brilliant Beginnings?

We have been matching and supporting surrogates with our unique professional service since 2013. We have helped to bring more than 90 babies into the world, and led the campaign for surrogacy law reform alongside our sibling organisation NGA Law.

Our surrogates come to us because we care and we keep our promises. We regularly support repeat surrogacy journeys and our team includes former Brilliant Beginnings surrogates who believe passionately in the way we do things.
