April Moore

Delivered her son, Cason, at LCHC

“I had a wonderful first experience with LCHC’s Midwife, Sharon! The fact that I got to see the same person for my prenatal care and during my delivery was something that helped me feel at ease. The OB nurses were wonderful and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!”

Kristi & Kevin Comstock

Delivered their son, Leo, at LCHC

“Our experience at Lucas County Health Center tops our first delivery experience at another facility ten-fold. Our nurses were very accommodating and provided us with a very relaxed environment. We never felt pressured and were happy with our more natural environment. We also loved the fact that Dr. Sundquist let Kevin assist with delivering our son, Leo. We would recommend both Dr. Sundquist and LCHC over and over again!”

Sara Bethards

Delivered her daughter, Della, at LCHC

“This was our third experience with Dr. Cohen. I’ve always felt well taken care of and relaxed. I loved the fact that we had the same nurse and provider with all three of our deliveries!”

3D/4D Ultrasound

Is your baby ready for their close-up? Through modern high-definition technology, Lucas County Health Center can photograph your child before he or she is born. Within minutes, you will be able to see your baby’s picture.

This service allows you the opportunity to have the caring professionals in LCHC’s Radiology department take photos of your child while he/she is still in the womb. Following your 3D/4D ultrasound, you will receive printed photos and a CD with electronic copies of the photographs.

You no longer have to waste time and money driving to the city for your 3D/4D ultrasound. When you are in week 26 to week 28 of your pregnancy, call LCHC’s Radiology department to make an appointment to get a 3D/4D ultrasound.

For more information, ask your healthcare provider or call LCHC Radiology today!

Online Nursery

Meet our newest arrivals at LCHC! As a service offered to our OB patients, we will take photos of your newborn during the first days of life to help you capture the joy of their arrival. Photos may be taken of your infant alone, or, with your family and/or siblings. If you would like to have special items (i.e. hair bows, baby blankets, special outfits) used in photographing your baby, please bring them with you to the hospital.

The photo session is free and you can expect to receive your CD in the mail 4-6 weeks after delivery.

Please note – photos taken by LCHC will only be posted to LCHC’s online nursery with your consent. Upon admission to LCHC’s OB department, you will be given the opportunity to complete a form either consenting or declining permission for LCHC to publish your baby/family photos to our online nursery.



Prenatal Classes & Schedule

Every year brings changes and advancements in knowledge and technology available to expectant parents. Our prenatal program is designed to prepare you for the birth of your baby, one of the most exciting events in your life, and a moment that you will cherish and remember always.

The purpose of this class is to help you understand the process of labor and delivery and to also answer questions you may have about the birth of your child. We believe that the more knowledge you have of the process of birth, the more likely you will approach your personal journey with confidence and a positive perspective.

Patients delivering at LCHC are welcome to attend a prenatal class free of charge. Patients delivering at a facility other than LCHC may attend our classes for a $10 fee.
