Pregnancy and Birth Survey: Achievement and Content of Support
Immediately after the earthquake, the most frequent topic was worries over radiation and its effects, but the percentage of such consultations is declining over time. Since FY2012, consultations on mothers' mental and physical health and matters concerning child rearing have increased and now rank high.
Regarding the follow-up survey in FY2012, those who required support accounted for 12.7% of all respondents, showing a decrease from the percentage of the follow-up survey in FY2011 (14.7%). From the follow-up surveys in FY2013 onward, support was expanded to cover those considered to be in need of support based on the content of their free comments. Accordingly, the percentage requiring support increased from that in FY2012.
