April Dream Project
Cumenta Group will realize the Cument Town concept, which will develop medical and welfare infrastructure to support childcare!
* Centered on Japan’s first clinic that focuses on the psychological care of perinatal women and children, we have built a safe
child-rearing environment with a full range of pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, and child care for sick children! *
This press release is a dream sent out by a business operator who sympathizes with the April Dream project and wants to make April 1st a day full of dreams, hoping to make them come true.
Our company supports April Dream, which aims to make April 1st the day to share dreams. This press release is a dream of “Cumenta Co., Ltd.” It all started with the experience of miscarriage.
In 2019, our CEO Mr. and Mrs. Kume experienced a miscarriage. At that time, the obstetrician and gynecologist in charge told Kume, the psychiatrist.
“In Japan, there is no place we can turn to for perinatal mental health care, so I’m wondering if you can help. I’m sure a doctor who understands the pain that only those affected by it can do.” These words move the couple in their grief.
In place of the child I lost, I wanted to foster a ray of hope for everyone.

Japan’s obstetrics are excellent, and there are almost no deaths during pregnancy.
However, suicide is common. That’s why mental health care is so important, but no one has done it until now because it’s a difficult field.
Everything was just a matter of groping and failure.
What I realized through various efforts was that in order to support and energize a single person, direct mental treatment alone is not enough.
Mothers’ worries were often related to children, and many were also worried about infertility treatment and marital relationships. Where will you give birth? How will you care for your child? Will you be able to balance household chores and work?
To be honest, although we had many patients, we were troubled by the reality that there were more things we couldn’t do than what our clinic could do on its own.
Clinics only provide medication-based treatment, and they are not able to take care of children.
Even if we can provide psychological care, we cannot provide a place to give birth.
Although it is not impossible to request work from other
organizations, closures of pediatric and obstetric departments have become noticeable. There is also a serious shortage of daycare centers, and regular daycare centers won’t take care of your child if they have a fever. It is difficult to leave school children after the 4th grade of elementary school.
All of these must be resolved.
Moreover, the weakening of each organization has become even more serious due to the society-wide problem of the declining birthrate. The Kumen Town concept aims to solve these problems.
Although current clinics only provide psychological care, this is the core of child-rearing support.
A pediatrics department and an obstetrics and gynecology department will be added to the facility, as well as a sick child care facility for children who are not feeling well.
We believed that many issues could be solved if we could develop infrastructure for child-rearing support, such as care facilities for mothers who are unstable after giving birth, and training and counseling facilities for children.
If everything is integrated into a facility, various costs such as rent, recruitment, and attracting customers can be kept low. This will reduce the burden on both users and service providers. Clinic psychologists can also work with the same clients at the training facility.
Midwives who perform childbirth can either provide mental health care at the clinic or engage in postpartum care.
It also allows many organizations to centralize information. If it is attached, it is also possible to continue loss-making businesses such as child care for sick children.
If we can do this, many problems can be solved.

Critically declining birthrate
However, the hurdles to achieving this are very high.
It will require capital investment in the billions, and I think it will be difficult to secure human resources.
The hurdles for establishing medical and welfare facilities are extremely high due to unreasonable legal regulations, and the survival of many existing organizations is in jeopardy.
We would like to move forward with the plan as soon as possible, but we need to overcome these obstacles.
Therefore, from now on, we must get through this difficult situation with the support of more people than ever before.
Unfortunately, we are not strong enough alone.
If you read this article and would like to work with us or provide assistance, we would be happy to hear from you.

* We look forward to hearing from those who share our dreams! * The Kumen Town concept is the first attempt in the nation to develop medical and welfare infrastructure.
We would like to hear your opinions and help from individuals, municipalities, and companies who would like to support our efforts to help create a city that can make this a reality!
