I visited Amakusa city, Kumamoto prefecture to see effects of Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant accident. Though I have visited various places in Japan to see the health consequence of the accident, I have never found any effect against creatures in Japan.
Kumamoto prefecture is located in "Kyushu" which is southernmost of the four main islands of Japan. Kyushu is very away from Fukushima and Japanese think that products of Kyushu have never contaminated by radioactive materials of the accident. So Kyushu grown foods such as, vegetables, fruits, meats, fish and so on are widely consumed in Japan.
So I visited there to see effects of the accident against foods grown in Kyushu.
Fortunately, I could see no abnormalities and I couldn't find any impact of the accident. It seems that there is no problem for childbirth and child-rearing in Kyushu, Japan.
