A Yokohama-based foundation that supports international residents in Japan has created a guide to help expectant parents understand childbirth and childcare in the country. It's available in five languages in addition to simple Japanese and can be viewed on the organization's website. Follow along as we listen to the news story, go over what the guide offers, and learn about Japan's "boshi-techoo" (Maternal and Child Health Handbook) system.
