Helen in the media

It’s time to be grown up about surrogacy

Brilliant Beginnings’ Helen Prosser says that’s a gross misunderstanding. “This is no different from advances in medical treatment that give intended parents the opportunity to have IVF cycles. It is not commoditising – people wouldn’t do surrogacy if they didn’t need to.”

Would you use a surrogate like Kim and Kanye?

Helen Prosser says these battles are extremely rare. ‘There are easier ways for a surrogate to get pregnant if she wants her own baby,’ she says. ‘But the legal framework in the UK at the moment is out of date’.

The rise of surrogacy in Britain

“We’ve got same-sex marriage now, so it doesn’t make any sense that you wouldn’t enable surrogacy,” says Helen Prosser. Bright and energetic, she talks animatedly about the work she does.
