I work with many couples from Japan and around the world as well as USA.  The surrogates and egg donors from PMI are terrific women and a pleasure to work with.  In addition, PMI gives Intended Parents a unique level of service to help them undergo these procedures in a new environment in comfort and with confidence.

My work with PMI has been a rewarding experience. The young ladies who have been egg donors or surrogates have been bright, friendly, and cooperative. My job is to assess their understanding of the process they are becoming involved in and to determine their psychological stability. PMI is a professional agency that is a pleasure to be a part of.

TW & TW

We had been having fertility treatment many years but couldn’t get pregnant. It was so hard for me to hear that my sister was pregnant at that time. We were about to give up, but we still wanted to have a hope.

 

We had a beautiful daughter through surrogacy at PMI.

We are so glad we made the decision.

 

My daughter is growing up very healthy and cheerful.

We recommend you make a decision as soon as possible, too.

Thank you very much to Pacific Miracles!

EK & RK

We got married at old age, but we really wanted to have children.

So, we had started fertility treatment right after we got married.

We had no luck…. then we have decided to contact PMI and had a program.

Now, just by looking at the smile of our precious child, we are so happy and seeing a wonderful future together.

 

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of you, PMI who have helped us.

Time flies. If you would like to build a family in alternative way, why don't you consult with PMI as soon as possible? Let's step on it with courage!

I highly recommend PMI to anyone considering becoming an egg donor because they provide the kind of individualized service that makes you feel very comfortable. They were extremely knowledgeable and always available to answer questions, they checked in frequently to make sure I was doing well, and they served as a strong advocate for me throughout. Their warm personality, their professionalism, and their dedication to helping couples with infertility make PMI the best choice in egg donation.

"If you don't raise a child, there's no point in living.”

It was our thought…and finally we were able to hold our child.

It was really the last chance of a long long road, just one fertilized embryo.

“Can't we still have children?” Then, we received a happy news from PMI.

 

It certainly costs money, however we think that it's the weight of life.

We had to go through several infertility clinics in Japan for many years and then finally we decided to have a surrogacy though PMI. We felt so comfortable with the team of PMI. We had a lot of anxiety, but the immediate response from the team gave us a sense of security and became a great trust. 

Thank you so much to PMI

It's hard to raise a child, but we are very happy to be parents

Donor D

Working with PMI is a joy. They made me feel so comfortable about the process and is such a caring people. On top of being an excellent resource for any questions I had for the egg donation process, they were one of the most loving and caring people I have ever met. Of course, this is the kind of people that you want involved for such an intimate and personal situation. I made the decision to donate because I wanted to help families that could not have children of their own. I had previously talked with another individual who would be the recipient and it was a very difficult process to undergo without the professional and personal expertise of an agency like PMI. I highly recommend their heartfelt and professional service. Thank you PMI!

卵子提供者 Mさん

私は、二度エッグドナーとして卵子提供をさせて頂きました。 他にも沢山のエージェンシーがある中、貴社を選ばせて頂いたきっかけは、スタッフの皆さんが真剣に卵子提供について考え、力になりたいと思ってらっしゃるお気持ちが伝わってきたからです。また、それが私の気持ちと合致したため、登録させて頂きました。 実際にスタッフの方とお会いし、その温かいお人柄に感銘を受け、縁があって二回目も参加させて頂きました。 ドナーに対してもクリニックや近くのスーパーへの車での送迎をするお心遣いを頂いたり、通訳等もしてくださったおかげで不安なく採卵を終えることができました。ぜひパシフィック・ミラクルで、ドナーになることをおすすめいたします。かけがえのない経験になることでしょう。

I さん

私は生まれつき子宮や卵巣に異常があり、自分の卵子を体外受精して代理母に出産してもらうこともできませんし、また第三者の卵子提供を受けて妊娠・出産もできません。子供を持つことは小さなころからの夢で、年齢を重ねて結婚した後もその夢は大きくなるばかりでした。小さな赤ちゃんを見る度に子供が欲しいという感情を抑えられず、主人と相談して代理母出産を行うことを決意しました。

卵子提供や代理母出産は、日本では認められていません。私のような思いを持った女性が数多くいるにも関わらず、倫理的な問題という理由で日本では行われていないのが実情です。 私たちは、まずはインターネットを使って情報収集を始めました。そもそも匿名性の高い医療ですから、インターネットで得られた情報がどの程度信頼性のあるものかはわかりません。ですが、情報収集を進めていくと、アジアの一部の国やアメリカの一部の州では代理母出産が実施されていることが徐々にわかってきました。

次に、私たちは、日本や海外に所在している代理母出産のエージェントに連絡を取り、出来るだけ正確な情報を得るように心がけました。それでわかってきたことは、アメリカのカリフォルニア州では法律が整備され、エージェンシー、医師や弁護士が多くおり、アジアの国で行うよりも安心できるということでした。料金面ではアメリカの方が高額になることも同時にわかりました。主人と相談して、生まれてくる子供の安全を第一に考えてアメリカでの代理母出産を進めることにしました。米国にも現地のエージェントが多くありますが、出産後には日本に帰国して日本の国籍を取得したいので、やはり日本での事情に詳しい日本人のエージェントにお願いしたいと思いコンタクトを取り始めました。エージェントの方々と連絡を取り合っている間に、米国での代理母出産について、より詳しい情報も得られました。最初にハードルとなったのは、卵子提供と代理母出産を同時に行うことを助けてくれるエージェンシーが少ないことです。この2つを同時に行うにはドナーや代理母、依頼主である私達を含めて多くの関係者の意向を考慮しなくてはならず、アレンジが大変であることも理由の一つにあろうかと思います。また生まれてくる赤ちゃんの親権について、卵子提供や代理母出産を単体で行うよりも注意点が増えることも大きな理由かと思います。

ここでお断りしておきたいことは、代理母出産は、通常の医療と違い、患者と医師との一対一の関係では成立せず、依頼主、ドナー、代理母、医師等関係者が多く、とても複雑だということです。代理母出産は、卵子提供ドナーと依頼主である私たちの匿名性を保つ必要もありますし、代理母の健康も大事な要素になります。依頼したドナーから正常で健康な卵子が得られる保証もなく、代理母への移植が確実に成功する保証もありません。またうまく移植が成功しても必ずしも出産まで漕ぎ着けることが確実なわけではありません。過去の統計ではある程度の成功確率はわかりますが、自分たちの治療でその確率が当てはまるとは決して言えません。それは健常者の妊娠・出産でも常にリスクがあり、無事赤ちゃんが生まれることは決して確実とは言えないことと同じことです。依頼したドクターが、最初の面会で、「妊娠出産は奇跡だ」とおっしゃっていたことが正にその通りだと思います。私たちは様々な角度から、とても慎重にリスクを検討し、そうしたリスクを許容した上で代理母出産を実行することにしました。

Surrogate, Shana

It is with great pleasure that I get to tell you a little about my experience as a surrogate and my personal experience with PMI. I was blessed to be a surrogate for PMI. I know Emily personally and professionally and I can tell you that she is a beautiful example of what both things combined should be. She is honest and holds true to a moral code which most agencies don’t do anymore. She is a great resource and advocate for intended parents and surrogates alike. I think the reason is because she has faced and overcome the same things the intended parents are going through. She treasures her surrogates because she also understands that without them dreams of having a child for some may not be possible. If I could instill anything to the soon to be intended parent it would be to contact her and know that she will be there for you from start to finish, no questions asked.

Bless you on your journey, it is possible, this I know to be true....

Surrogate’s husband Ryan

We have three children of our own whom we love dearly and are so blessed to have. I didn’t realize the struggle, I guess because I never had to before. My wife became pregnant for the intended parents first try and we have had a wonderful relationship with them. I don’t think I cried as much when my own kids were born as I did when I saw the Intended Parents see their son for the first time. Knowing my wife made that possible because she has so much love in her heart for others has made me a better person for it. Emily is a wonderful person and can help make your dream possible; she has been in the same situation you might be experiencing right now. I hope all is well with you and your family and happy journeys to you.

Donor C

I decided to donate because I wanted to help families that were having difficulty having children on their own. Watching my younger sister grow up and seeing how my younger cousins made my family happy, I work as an attorney, and I see the value in PMI’s service and their skills in helping families. PMI has been wonderful through the two donations that I have undergone with them and I’m so glad that I got to try to help a loving family have children.
