Dr. Brass-Jones recalls the first childbirth she experienced.
First baby I saw delivered was as a student, and that was actually a C-section.
So we had to get all dressed up and it was a little overwhelming because I had never gotten all dressed up in an operating room and, you know, never, I don’t think I had ever even seen a surgery before.
And so it was a completely different experience, like, all around. And out came this beautiful baby and then those doctors just sewed that lady right back up.
She looked the same when she was done as she did before and I was like, wow, that’s awesome.
That’s something that might just fit right in with what I need to do with my life.
About Dr. Christine Brass-Jones, D.O.:
Dr. Christine Brass-Jones, D.O., was born and raised in Flushing, New York, attended college on Long Island at SUNY Stony Brook, and left New York for Iowa to attend medical school at the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Des Moines. Dr. Brass-Jones chose osteopathic medicine because of its holistic view of caring for the patient. She finished a traditional internship and then a residency in OB/GYN at Mesa General Hospital in Mesa, Arizona. She is board certified and does deliveries and surgeries at Banner Gateway Hospital in Gilbert, Arizona.
Dr. Brass-Jones joined a traditional OB/GYN practice in 2000 after completing residency but was not satisfied with her decision. Over the next two years she concentrated on the development of an integrated medical center that would focus on women as the core of the family and helping them to create wellness within themselves. They would then be able to extend this wellness to their families, creating healthier family units.
