Women's Health Services

At ProMedica Defiance Regional Hospital, our Women’s Center provides patients in our community comprehensive range of childbirth, diagnostic, and education services. Learn more about women’s health services throughout ProMedica, or view information below about the specific services provided at the center:

Childbirth Services

The Women’s Center at Defiance Regional Hospital is a Level 1 obstetrics and newborn nursery unit with private LDRP (labor/delivery/recovery/postpartum) rooms equipped so newborns can stay with their mother as long as desired. Our specially trained nurses and certified lactation consultant provide answers for all your childbirth or childcare questions.

Once you leave our facility, new parents can call our 24-hour BabyTalk Hotline (419-783-6975) with any questions you may have concerning the care of your new baby.

Labor and Delivery – Beautiful Beginnings

Often when expectant parents think about getting ready for baby, they imagine picking out a paint color for the nursery, making sure they have enough diapers and finding that perfect name. And while these are important considerations, we’re here to make sure you’re just as prepared for things like childbirth, breastfeeding, infant CPR, introducing your new little one to his or her big brother or sister, and more.

To enroll in any of the following classes, please call 419-783-4408.

Diagnostic Services

Through the Women’s Center at Defiance Regional Hospital, we offer diagnostic services that are tailored to women’s health needs, such as DEXA (bone density) scans. We provide a full range of clinical breast care screenings and diagnostics featuring the latest technology, including digital mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound, and breast MRI.
