"This. This is the moment we’ve all wanted so vehemently and individually, and it’s here. She is here" @SophieBeresiner #themotherproject #surrogacyandme

"I have no frame of reference, since I’m the only person I know who is the new parent of a surrogate baby": this is what happened when @SophieBeresiner's long-awaited baby was born during lockdown #themotherproject #surrogacyandme

"I’m new-mother anxious and already tired, but I’m also here, where so many times I never thought I would be! And it is ridiculously important to me to do everything perfectly": @SophieBeresiner on bringing her longed-for baby home #themotherproject

Such a crystal clear capture of the crazy times my baby was born into. I hope she’ll see this one day and think ‘woah! That’s mental’ rather than ‘lol they only had paper and fabric masks back then?’. Come on…

I’ve been following @SophieBeresiner’s story in @thetimes for the last couple of years and she (+ Mr B) finally got their dream baby Marlies earlier this year. Loving #themotherproject on IG and the new column in today’s @TheSTStyle. Marlies is also absolutely adorable.

"It’s taken four years to get here; seven failed cycles... but it has all culminated in this: me, sitting here, surrounded by the astounding collection of people who helped to get her here, and helped physically to make her too" @SophieBeresiner

Happy Sunday! It’s a new dawn, it’s on a new day, and I’m excited about sharing the continuing ups and downs of life after surrogacy in @theststyle.
So happy to keep bringing awareness to this incredible experience…

How am I supposed to get anything done?! TOo muCh cUtE

Britain’s youngest @Hamiltonmusical fan. 12 weeks old and cries at the beat bits. @lin_manuel any space for a small one?

Room with a view.
We renovated our whole house over seven years but I think the nursery is my favourite room. It’s supremely calming even though the wallpaper is crazy. Who knew finding baby stuff would be such a…

Never not wondering what life post lockdown will be like, especially as people slowly go back to work, especially in my industry.
This was a shot from my socially distanced shoot for thetimes, which was quite…

I put this up on @SophieBeresiner with a caption about feeling robbed of ‘proper’ mat leave. And then I took it down, because look how happy I am! This situation is just what it is, but it can only be positive when…

Yes, please.

"No one is supposed to know what will happen to them or how they will get there": @SophieBeresiner opens up about her extraordinary journey to motherhood ❤️

How strange that a citrus fruit can become so meaningful to me. Because of an American TV show. Who even am I?

This new lelabofragrances was bottled for me two days before we flew to Washington to do the eighth and final embryo transfer - the one that made Marlies. I didn’t say why but got them to personalise it with…

Maternity leave in lockdown is definitely a different thing but we are loving the quiet life. First weekend without a @SophieBeresiner in thetimes for two years! Will be back soon, until…
