University of North Carolina Press

Lovie is approached in public by a number of former clients (“my mamas”) as well as by some of the grown-up children (“my babies”) whose births she attended. Lovie revels in this public recognition, enjoying the news that one of her “babies” has grown up to make something of herself and grieving when she learns that others have fallen on hard times.
