“I'd rather see a baby be born in the world than to eat if I'm hungry.”
“There was a higher power and God give me wisdom. Motherwit, common sense. Wisdom come from on high. You got it and you cain't explain how you got it yo'self. It's motherwit.”
“[After Alabama decided not to renew midwife licenses:] I don't need a permit to deliver no babies. ... I know they cain't stop a daddy from deliverin his own baby. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if I was asked to he'p a daddy.”
“When I was really deliverin babies in all my times, lateness of the hour and the earlies of the mornin didn't bother me. I just went when I was called. There has been a many dreary nights but I didn't look at em as dreary nights. I had my mind on where I was going and what I was goin for.”
Onnie Lee Logan, U.S. midwife
(1910 - 1995)
