Perinatal Center

Features of the Perinatal Center

1.Provides reassuring support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Obstetricians, pediatricians and midwives are ready to accept expectant mothers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

2.Supports patients by offering advanced and reliable medical care

With an extensive selection of specialists, the Center can provide highly reliable medical care. We are capable of addressing high-risk labor/delivery and emergency situations in collaboration with anesthesiologists. The Center is also set up to work closely with all other clinical departments including internal medicine and surgery, which is another feature that gives patients peace of mind.
Furthermore, newborn babies are thoroughly checked by pediatricians. Before a new mother and her newborn are discharged, a pediatrician visits their room to examine the newborn and answer whatever questions the mother may have so that she can leave the hospital feeling reassured.

3.Focuses on providing individualized guidance

Midwives provide mothers and newborns with close support as an advisor, offering a continuum of individualized care and guidance during pregnancy and throughout delivery and post-delivery parenting.

Perinatal psychological support: Clinical psychologists help mothers and the family bond with their babies

Women go through a variety of physical and psychological changes during their pregnancy and childbirth. It is absolutely natural for expectant and new mothers to feel not only happiness, but also anxieties and confusion. The Perinatal Center has its own dedicated clinical psychologists, who provide a continuum of reassuring psychological advice throughout a woman’s journey to becoming a mother. Support is offered when she visits the Center as an outpatient, during her hospital stay for labor and delivery, and upon discharge to help her comfortably take care of her baby at home.

After delivery, a clinical psychologist attends the new mother’s bedside to have a chat while watching over the newborn and, if requested, holds individual interviews in a meeting room. If the newborn is admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), the clinical psychologist stays by the family and keeps an observant eye on the development of the baby. The clinical psychologist will always be there for the family as they start bonding with the baby, while respecting their desired timing throughout the process. After discharge, ongoing support may be provided in partnership with local public health nurses if necessary. Please rest assured that the Center fully protects patient privacy.

Please do not hesitate to ask for a meeting to be arranged with a clinical psychologist if you have any problems or concerns during your perinatal period, such as feeling depressed during pregnancy or after delivery, experiencing sleeplessness or loss of appetite, being unable to develop a positive attitude toward parenting, and having developmental concerns about your baby.
