NGA on the BBC – UK surrogacy has quadrupled in the last ten years

September 22, 2021

The BBC has been running news stories all day today about the growth of UK surrogacy, with parental order statistics showing that the numbers of UK surrogacy cases have quadrupled over the past ten years.

NGA and Brilliant Beginnings surrogacy team Sam, Guy and Miranda were interviewed for the evening news.

Natalie was also interviewed for BBC News and quoted in this online article:

“Department of Health guidance said it does not generally recommend that those considering surrogacy do so independently on sites like Facebook, instead pointing to one of the four UK non-profit organisations. The trouble is those organisations have long waiting lists. Natalie Gamble is director of Brilliant Beginnings – another non-profit organisation in the UK which matches surrogates and intended parents. “We get around 100 enquiries a month from women who want to be surrogates and that’s risen considerably in the past few years,” she said. “Unfortunately, there are still more intended parents looking for a match than we can help.”
