Who we are



Brilliant Beginnings is a non-profit professional surrogacy agency which supports surrogates, families and other professionals.

We create change to make families possible.

Our approach


We are dedicated to ethical UK and international surrogacy based on strong relationships, honesty and transparency.

Our service is free to surrogates and our costs are charged to intended parents on a non-profit basis.

Brilliant Beginnings guides our teams through every step, providing exceptional care to keep surrogates and intended parents protected and supported, and to safeguard the welfare of the child at the heart of every surrogacy journey.

Our story


Our founders are Helen Prosser and Natalie Gamble, whose long experience as surrogacy experts with NGA Law had made them acutely aware of the vulnerability of informal UK surrogacy arrangements and the difficulties experienced by UK parents going overseas. They wanted to make ethical surrogacy easier.

They founded Brilliant Beginnings in 2013 to offer a fully-managed surrogacy service for the first time in the UK. Their vision is to underpin the relationship-based ethos of UK surrogacy with stronger safeguards, and to help UK parents navigate ethical international surrogacy more smoothly.

Since then we have grown into a team which includes professionals, parents through surrogacy and experienced surrogates.

Our team

We are an established close-knit team, including professionals, parents through surrogacy and donation, and Brilliant Surrogates who have completed their own surrogacy journeys. We are all adamant about setting the highest standard for UK and international surrogacy and delivering our service with integrity, care and kindess.

How we make a difference


We are at the forefront of campaigning for UK surrogacy law reform, and have won many important legal changes. 

Education and awareness

We work with government and leading organisations, conduct research and speak at events and in the media.

Surrogacy law reform

We are calling for UK and international surrogacy law which properly recognises ethical surrogacy and includes all family forms.
