Maternity marks are desirable in Japan. The so-called "maternity mark" tags and buttons worn by expectant mothers alert bystanders to their condition. Japan Airlines now offers maternity mark tags to pregnant women flying domestic routes.
Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare “Healthy Parent and Child 21” plan is designed to achieve a pregnant-friendly environment, which also includes the workplace environment and passive smoking prevention. Some local governments have issued their own "baby inside" buttons and badges.
The baby badges are intended to make it easier for passersby to know that a woman is pregnant. And there is a helpful video about baby badges on the Japan Cabinet Office website.
As a public service, Lets Japan offers these 3 original alert-badge ideas for Japan. (Anger Inside; I Am Pervert ; Pacemaker Put In)
