Unfortunately, it is not possible to do labor and delivery at Oak Clinic, however we do actively handle prenatal care. At our Sumiyoshi, Osaka clinic, we can take care of prenatal exams up to 21 weeks 6 days, and at our Umeda clinic and Ginza clinic, we can take care of prenatal exams up to 11 weeks 6 days.

At our Oak Clinic Sumiyoshi location in Osaka, there are hospitalization facilities where we can assist with urgent situations at night and on holidays.

Prenatal diagnosis

Prenatal testing of a fetus in the womb helps to discern any genetic or chromosomal abnormalities, or morphological problems. Among the few newborns with congenital illness, chromosomal abnormalities have the most impact, and this is especially true with pregnancies of women over 35. The number of couples worried about this is increasing now.

At Oak Clinic, you can do various prenatal tests to set your mind at ease. For example, we offer the less-invasive “Quattro” test as well as amniocentesis, which is very reliable. Each test must be done at a specific part of the pregnancy.

Prenatal testing cannot identify all abnormalities, but does offer a high chance for any birth defects to be discovered at the appropriate time. If you have concerns, please contact us.
