Pregnancy and Birth Survey: Outline (2/2)_Figure

Details of the responses are compiled by the Radiation Medical Science Center for the Fukushima Health Management Survey, Fukushima Medical University, to detect people considered to be in need of support.1 If there are any people who are considered to be in need of support, midwives, public health nurses, doctors or other specialized staff members offer consultations or other support to such people by mail or by other means.

Since January 2020, the second follow-up survey to ask about mental and physical health conditions has been conducted, targeting FY2011 survey respondents who gave birth 8 years ago.


1. Respondents who replied that they tend to feel depressed and that they are not interested in things, or respondents who are considered to be in need of support based on the content of their free remarks (such as those who are in need of help, who are severely depressed, who need support for child rearing, who are worried about radiation doses, or who directly made requests or are requiring concrete answers)
