Understand your options with an Options Review meeting

The complexities and logistics of surrogacy for single mums can seem daunting, but we are highly experienced in breaking down and negotiating these challenges. If you are at the early stages and wish to find out more about how surrogacy can work for you then an Options Review is a good starting point.

In this meeting we can run through all the key considerations and discuss with you how your family goals can be met through surrogacy. Areas we look at include:

  • How to create embryos if you have not done so already
  • How to find a fertility clinic
  • Whether to look for a surrogate in the UK or abroad
  • Who to help you with your journey
  • What to budget for
  • How long it will take What the legal implications are

You can book into an Options Review meeting at either our London or Burgate offices. We are also happy to conduct them via Skype, Facetime or over the phone is that is more suitable for you.

Each meeting lasts around 2-3 hours and comes with a detailed letter summarising everything we have discussed during the meeting. Options Reviews are charged at £500 plus VAT.

Our matching process

Due to the current UK law related to single parents, we are only able to manage surrogacies for single people in the US and Canada. UK law is set to change soon, which will open up this option to single mums.

Our matching process for single parents involves meeting with you, and your support system (which could be a close friend or family member) and helping you to select the right destination. We can then help facilitate your match with a surrogate, clinic and other organisations that you will need to be work with.

Brilliant Beginnings can support you from deciding on your destination, through the pregnancy, to birth and until you are settled back home in the UK.
