In family medicine, there is a symmetry of physicians’ involvement in patients’ lives, shepherding families through life transitions in the beginning, middle, and end. As a teaching physician, the author bears witness to another “birth” in the development of resident physicians. This poem on symmetry was born on a particularly poignant day: helping a new intern “catch” his first baby in the morning, then gathering with the author’s own family in the evening for the passing of her grandmother.
