Making Babies: A podcast with Andrea Byrne

The Brilliant Beginnings/NGA Law team was delighted to chat with ITV journalist Andrea Byrne as part of her ‘Making Babies’ podcast series. Stephen, Teresa and Natalie all talked to Andrea about surrogacy in the UK and overseas, what it costs, how the law works and the ground-breaking work Brilliant Beginnings does to make surrogacy safer and smoother for everyone.

Stephen (BB Client Manager), and Teresa (BB Surrogate Manager) shared their own personal experiences. Stephen as a dad of two through UK surrogacy and Teresa as a two-time surrogate. We all got a bit emotional when Teresa mentioned the ‘delicious’ feeling she got seeing the babies she had carried in their parents’ arms for the first time, and when Stephen described his mum thanking his surrogate for making her a grandma. Surrogacy really is the most amazing thing.

The podcast is a great primer if you are starting out and gathering information, either as a surrogate or an intended parent.
