Founded in 2013, Brilliant Beginnings offers bespoke professional management of surrogacy. We work with intended parents who cannot carry a pregnancy themselves (because of fertility, medical or natural barriers) and surrogates who volunteer to carry children for intended parents who can't.
Our work has been featured in GQ, The Times and in British Vogue. Together with our sister organisation NGA Law (the UK's first fertility law firm), our team has been at the forefront of UK surrogacy for many years, creating more than 1,000 families and shaping UK law.
Brilliant Beginnings was founded to enable surrogacy in the UK and we support and mentor gestational surrogates. We guide surrogates at the outset to help understand the commitment needed to become a surrogate and ensure that everything is set up responsibly. From there, we match and guide surrogates and their intended parents through their ongoing journey. If you are thinking of becoming a surrogate, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to talk you through the process.
Brilliant Beginnings offers a structured service that ensures key decisions and expectations are aligned from the outset, so that surrogates and intended parents can focus on their relationship and the positivity of bringing a child into the world. We offer intended parents impartial guidance on setting up a surrogacy journey here in the UK or abroad, as well as managing and supporting surrogacy in the UK, Canada and the USA. With a well-established network of fertility clinics and lawyers around the world, we can help you find the perfect cluster of professionals to help you with your family creation plans.
We aim to be an integral part of every surrogacy journey that we support, taking a hands-on approach with you and the organisations you engage. This is why we partner with organisations that have a reputation for excellence and a track record in surrogacy, whether they are in the UK, Canada or the US.
Our role is to ensure that you have a plan for how you hope to have a family or help someone have a family, as well as being on hand to keep your journey on track.
Some of the organisations we work closely with are:
Brilliant Beginnings works alongside our sister organisation NGA Law to campaign for change to out of date regulation for surrogacy, fertility and LGBT+ families. You can read about more of our ongoing work and how to get involved in our Campaigning section.
We are a close-knit team, working with parents and surrogates across the UK from two locations (London and the New Forest). You can find out more about our founders and team members on Our Team page.
