Consultation Space

Josannshi Nanndemo Sodan Kai Event (Free of Charge)

In Fukushima prefecture, the third Sunday of November every year is “Parenting Day” and the week preceding and following the parenting day is set to be “Parenting Weeks”.
Therefore, the Fukushima prefecture branch organise midwives to hold “Josannshi Nanndemo Sodan Kai” annually in some district – where people are able to consult midwives about issues related to parenting and women’s health as well as engage in activities free of charge.
In 2011 we held it at Shirakawa district. People who visited the event experienced a Baby Massage session which both parents and the baby enjoyed, and were able to talk about issues related to breastfeeding, parenting, bringing up grandchildren, and women’s health with midwives.
We are looking forward to your visit to the event this year. We will inform you of the date in 2012 as soon as it is decided.

Sei & Inochi Health Education (Visiting lectures by request)

Some municipalities run “Sei & Inochi Health Education” as a part of the “Prevention of Suicide Curriculum” organised by each municipality.
In this lecture, children and young people learn about where life (Inochi) comes from, how everyone is born to this world and how precious each and every life, including your own, is.
If you are interested in holding this lecture, please contact your local midwife or contact our centre.
