Writing a personal piece in the Guardian about the options for gay men considering starting a family, Michael Segalov talked to Natalie about how surrogacy works in the UK:

“Solicitor Natalie Gamble runs a family law firm and British surrogacy agency. The sector in this country, she assures me, is highly regulated. It’s an act of altruism from the surrogate: no party can legally profit from the process per se. That said, the financial reality is a little complicated: expenses need never be proved or itemised.
