The Health Center
For your children's healthy growth and your family's good health

Issue of the "Mother and Child Health Handbook"(Boshi-techo)

Once you have a certificate of pregnancy from your doctor, please get a copy of the
Mother and Child Health Handbook from the Health Center. They have copies in English,
Chinese, Korean and Spanish. This notebook contains health information and advice
for pregnancy, and is also to record important information about the birth (date and
time, name of the hospital or facility, etc.) as well as details of your baby's vaccinations
and growth. Always bring it with you to vaccinations and health checks, and please use
it to record your child's health.

Health checks for expectant and nursing mothers

At the same time as you are issued with the Mother and Child Health Handbook you
will be given the "Mother and Child Health Guide"(Boshihoken-no-Shiori); this entitles
you to free health checks for pregnancy and as a nursing mother. Please show it when
consulting a doctor at a medical institution within the prefecture. When you have a
medical examination outside of the prefecture, you need to pay the full cost.
However, by presenting the receipt and a record of your visit to The Health Center, you
will be reimbursed.

Infant health checkups

Please have your child's health checked at 1 month and 11 months at a medical
institution within the prefecture. Please show your "Mother and Child Health Guide"
when you see the doctor.
We will look at your child's physical and mental development, and will discuss childcare
with you.
