If you are in Japan and pregnant, you should make sure where you can see a doctor when you got a flu. The government prohibit a pregnant mom who might have a flu from going to the OB not to spread it to other moms because women can’t have enough immune system while they are pregnant. So, you are supposed to go to the general hospital, but there is a big problem. The Yomiuri news paper says that about 40% of the general hospital can’t take care of the pregnant due to the lack of OB skills or equipments. That means if you got a flu, you might be passed around from one hospital to another under high fever and muscle pain!! Even the Japanese pregnants feel nerves about the coming flu season, so if you can’t use Japanese, you might be so scared in such a situation. Please ask someone to help you to find the proper hospital that can take care of you in advance!
