Noriko Aoyama

Originally from the countryside, Saitama, Japan.

I love playing and watching sports. Challenging college education and practice but precious time in my youth. I’ve travelled a lot.

A long practice implementation period, and it is still ongoing…

Over 40+ years of my life and 20+ years of clinical experience, 600+ babies delivered… I would like to share my experience and passion with you.

There is no pressure needed for mother and baby, but a support and warmth. I provide care for both Japanese and all nationalities that I have the fortune to meet and connect people together in this ever-developing diverse society in Japan.
