An exerpt: Every month at Atlanta Birth Center, dozens of precious human beings take their first breath inside our walls, guided and supported by our midwives, nurses, and back up physicians. The very day that protests and violence erupted in our city, blocks away from the birth center, a precious and innocent baby boy was brought peacefully into the world and into the arms of his Black mother, father, and two grandmothers. The world was quiet at that moment besides a few tears of joy and relief. The sacred space of birth was filled with happiness and joy for this beautiful new life.
