We’re hosting an in-person event on US surrogacy on 26 April 2023
7pm Wednesday April 26th 2023
55 Leroy Street, London SE1 4SN
Meet some of the top US surrogacy experts, including UK experts from Brilliant Beginnings and NGA Law, and leading professionals visiting in person from the US. Our four expert speakers will cover various aspects of a US surrogacy journey for UK parents, with the opportunity to ask questions, both after the event and through personal mini consultations. Come and meet:
- Helen Prosser, Brilliant Beginnings
- Dr Guy Ringler, California Fertility Partners
- Kelly Blaxall, NGA Law
A surrogacy journey in the US offers intended parents a tested ethical route to creating a family. Many want to understand is how much it will cost and how long will it take, as well as the process, avoiding pitfalls and how to make the best choice of professional partners to minimise any risk of complication along the way. We can answer those questions and more.
Brilliant Beginnings and NGA Law together have more experience of US surrogacy than any other UK professionals, and we are committed to creating UK families through US surrogacy in a safe, ethical and legal way.
When? 26th April 2023
Where? 55 Leroy Street, London, SE1 4SN
