“Every morning you can hear the waiting room of MamaBaby break out into singing and prayer, as over 30 women start their day waiting to be be seen by the midwives. Every night you hear the rap rap rap on the gate as women come in labor to the sanctuary and safety of MamaBaby to be tended to with loving care by the midwives.”
