The current population of the planet earth is 5.4billion people. Births are estimated at 145,365,000 per year.  Wow! To get a better realization of this number, calculate the number of births that number represemts for each of the following units of time. such as Per month, per week, per day, per hour, per minute, per second.

Alright, lots of numbers incoming.

Let's start per month: 145365000/12 = 12113750

12,113,750 births per month

next up is per week

Use the years amount to get this, and divide by 52 because of 52 weeks per year.

145365000/52 = 2795480.7692307692307692

Approx. 2795481 births per week

per day

145365000/365 = 398260.273972602739726

take 398260 for this next one

Per hour

398260/24 = 16594.1666666666666667

Per minute (use 16594)

16594/60 = 276.5666666666666667

Per second (use 277)

277/60 = 4.6166666666666667

All numbers are rounded to whole numbers because you cannot have a partial birth.

Hope this helps!
