Tokyo-based English Speaking OBGYNS

Tokyo-based English Speaking OBGYNs

Here is a curated listed of Tokyo-based English speaking OBGYNs that we (Lauren and Sandra) and many of my Tokyo Expat friends have used and recommend.  If you are choosing an OBGYN for pregnancy, you will also want to check which hospital or clinic the doctor has delivery access.   Choosing a doctor is a personal decision based on many decision factors. This list below should guide you in the right direction, but the final decision on which doctor you use is yours alone.

If you have other English-speaking OBGYNs to recommend please email me at the contact form or submit below in the comment section. Hopefully, this information will be helpful for you and your family!
