At Brilliant Beginnings, we help surrogates in the UK to find intended parents to help, while supporting you throughout the journey. We can also work with you to support a surrogacy arrangement if you are acting as a surrogate for a family member or friend.
We know that is a big undertaking to become a surrogate, so ensuring that you are matched with the right intended parents is key. Our role is to make sure that you have someone who can facilitate your surrogacy and support you.
In the UK there is a dire shortage of surrogates, and we hope that this will change as more incredible women become surrogates.
It takes someone with a generous spirit, compassion and dedication, to be a surrogate. Someone prepared to help other people become parents and change their lives forever. It can make all the difference in the world to intended parents just to know that there are wonderful women willing to try to help them.
Surrogates who work with Brilliant Beginnings are matched with intended parents who can’t have children on their own. We care as much about our surrogates well being as our intended parents, which is why we manage the process from start to end, working with both parties.

This is discussed in depth when you sign up as a surrogate with BB as you will need clear information about the process and implications before you decide to go ahead.
At Brilliant Beginnings, we only match gestational/host surrogates but will happily signpost traditional surrogates to alternative organisations.
If you are not aware, there are two main types of surrogacy that one can undertake, gestational and traditional surrogacy:
We can help you to understand the implications of becoming a surrogate, and the options available, so that you can reach a decision about whether surrogacy is for you.
We have a fantastic group of surrogates and we are proud to work with all of them. So who better to tell you a little about what it’s like to be a surrogate than one of our own:
There is a lot to consider when becoming a surrogate and there are different factors which will be more or less important to you. To help you understand a bit more about being a UK surrogate, take a look at the following page:
