Prenatal and Postpartum care center Vitalité

For mothers to be able to begin childcare with a smile
We provide comprehensive support for mothers
and their families from prenatal to postpartum care.

Vitalité is a French word that expresses the power of life.

This is an at-home facility that provides comprehensive physical and mental support for mothers.

With attentive care and childcare support,
the facility assists in the healing of the postpartum body in a comfortable environment so that mothers and families who have welcomed a new life can begin childcare with peace of mind.

The facility is available for use before and after childbirth.



The immediate postpartum period is an important time for the parents and the baby to meet and bond.

Yet mothers are in a sensitive state of mind and body due to a decrease in hormones after childbirth.

On the other hand, this is also the most important time for the baby to form an attachment, which is said to determine the psychological health of the baby’s life. At Vitalité House, we provide devoted care by midwives and other experts in childbirth and childcare, while healing the mother’s body and mind during this important period.

We support parental bonding and familial autonomy to help the baby, mother, and family start their new life happily.

For prenatal mothers, we provide assistance to ease anxieties about childbirth and facilitate a seamless birth experience.

Children and their parents require a lot of nurturing hands and eyes.

To heal their minds and bodies in a safe environment. To tend to their spirits with nourishing food. And to be cared for with kindness.

Such experiences create the roots of the human spirit.

We hope you visit Vitalité House and spend these precious moments.

We look forward to meeting you.

  • I felt that the midwives were very supportive. I was given detailed information on breastfeeding, and I was able to feel at ease because they answered all my questions and concerns about my physical condition. It was also nice to be able to interact with other residents and share information about childcare. The rooms are clean and elegant, but at the same time somewhat homey. I recommend this facility to families who want to cooperate with each other in raising their children, as there is a lot of follow-up support for both parents.

    20s, First delivery, Family room

  • The meals were nutritious, colorful, and delicious, and I enjoyed them with all my senses. The lounge had a nice breeze and made me feel at home, and the artwork created a very nice space. The rooms have wide windows and the texture of the wood is very relaxing. I liked that it was soundproofed and the lighting was adjustable. I was very happy to feel that the staff adore us like their own children and grandchildren.
