We spoke with BBC News about the increase in surrogacy among UK intended parents
We were delighted to be part of last week’s BBC coverage of UK surrogacy. BBC television and radio ran stories throughout the day, following new research showing that surrogacy cases for UK parents have quadrupled over the past decade.
One of our brilliant surrogacy teams was filmed for the 6 o’clock and 10 o’clock news. Intended parents Sam and Guy and surrogate Miranda talked about their own experience of surrogacy with Brilliant Beginnings, keen to raise awareness and show how positive ethical surrogacy in the UK can be. As Sam later said to us:
“if it helps even one surrogate and parent(s) come together then it was more than worth it”.
Alyssa and Natalie from our team also spoke to the BBC national news about international surrogacy. Surrogate manager Alyssa Martin shared her own unique experience of having been a surrogate in both California and the UK, and our founder Natalie Gamble spoke about why law reform is so desperately needed for both UK and international surrogacy.
