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.
