Natural Child Birth Q & A
Will I have options for labor and delivery?
The team at the Center for True Harmony Wellness & Medicine are honored to provide the birthing experience you desire. At least seven out of 10 women who choose True Harmony for pregnancy care prefer natural childbirth, so you can count on their dedication and experience.

Where will my baby be delivered?
Your baby will be delivered at Banner Desert Medical Center. Banner Desert Medical Center offers a state-of-the-art labor and delivery department that’s in tune with holistic options such as natural childbirth. For example, Banner Desert has midwives delivering babies.
What is Hypno-Birthing®?
Hypno-Birthing, or the Mongan Method, helps you have a natural childbirth with optimal comfort and confidence by teaching you how to achieve a deep level of relaxation during delivery. You’re not hypnotized or in a trance, but you’ll reach a calm state that’s similar to the type of focus that occurs when you’re fully involved in a book or staring into a fire.
The goal of Hypno-Birthing is to enable muscle relaxation so you can experience natural childbirth without the pain caused by tight, constricted muscles. You and your birth partner learn the technique and scripts used to help you relax by participating in a course that lasts five weeks.
Can I have natural childbirth after a prior cesarean section?
Dr. Brass-Jones and the team at the Center for True Harmony Wellness & Medicine believe in natural childbirth options, including a vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC). The primary concern of VBAC is the risk of a uterine rupture at the site of the prior cesarean scar.
The risk is low, however, and Dr. Brass-Jones gives you all the information you need to make the best decision. If you decide to try a VBAC, you can still choose natural childbirth, but you’ll need to be prepared for the doctor to closely monitor your progress to ensure the safety of you and your baby.
