Please notify the municipal office of your pregnancy (NINSHIN TODOKE). At the municipal office, a Maternal and Child Health Handbook (BOSHI TECHO) will be issued to you. The Maternal and Child Health Handbook consists of health records of mother and child. You will receive health checkup tickets that you can use for health checkups for pregnant women at public expense.
※The Maternal and Child Health Handbook is available in several languages.

住民登録のある役所で「妊娠届」を提出し、「母子健康手帳」を受け取ります。この手帳は母と子の健康と成長の記録です。大切に保管しましょう。妊婦健診補助券(健診費用を補ってくれるチケット)なども配付されます。
※母子健康手帳は外国語版もあります。
