Online Pregnancy Notification Form

Beginning July 2018, you can now submit your Pregnancy Notification Form online using the Mynaportal site (requires the hard plastic Individual Number card). When using this service, be sure to submit your online application at least one week before you plan to visit your health center. Please be sure to fill out the health questionnaire before you visit as we would like to know how you are feeling. You will also have to come and pick up your Maternal and Child Health Handbook at your ward health center at a later date (we cannot send the handbook to you via postal mail).

It will take about 20 minutes to issue your Maternal and Child Health Handbook to you; as there is no appointment system, you may be asked to wait at the counter while we prepare your handbook. We ask for your understanding in this matter and appreciate your cooperation.

Please note that this service is only available in Japanese and to those who have the hard plastic Individual Number card. For details about the process, please see here (Japanese).
