Founders

MIRACLE Surrogacy is the premier surrogacy agency in Mexico, offering very affordable, full-service surrogacy programs in Cancun and Mexico City. The agency’s headquarters is based in the USA and was founded by Brian and Henry Yaden, who have been through the surrogacy process themselves. Their first child, Patricia, was born through surrogacy in Thailand in November 2014, and their second little baby, Lourdes, was born in November 2019. They couldn’t be more proud and grateful for the births of their little Miracles! But their surrogacy journeys weren’t without some challenges along the way. Their experiences—the magical births of their beautiful babies and the bumps in the road throughout their journeys—inspired them to begin helping other intended parents in 2014 with surrogacy programs in Mexico.

Today, MIRACLE Surrogacy has become the industry leader of surrogacy in Mexico. The agency recruits all its own egg donors and surrogates directly, which is very important to ensure very strict medical and psychological screening standards are met or exceeded. The agency is very active with community outreach, providing in-depth education to prospective egg donors and surrogates, giving them the opportunity to learn directly from special women who have successfully donated eggs or had a baby through surrogacy. We also provide ongoing psychological care for our surrogates during the pregnancy and even after the birth of the baby.

We also assist in the exit process for your baby by providing guidance on procedures for obtaining birth certificates and passports. We realize there are many questions that arise prior to beginning surrogacy, throughout the entire journey, and even after the birth of your baby. Your MIRACLE Surrogacy team is available around the clock for you, every day, including weekends and holidays, via Zoom, phone, text, or email. With MIRACLE Surrogacy, you are never alone during your surrogacy journey. We not only understand the emotional and financial stress of international surrogacy but also know the joy of succeeding and finally expanding your family. Through our personal experience and knowledge, we guide our clients through what can be a difficult process with understanding and compassion. We are very proud of the hundreds of families we have helped over the years and the positive impact we have had on our very special surrogates and egg donors.
