An Elderly Mid-wife

My neighbour Mary Keremei alias mama chap impresses me the way she does her work. Many women shun hospital and flock in her clinic for their delivery, her skills has indeed supressed many. She inherited this from her mother but has modernized hers as she used modern equioment like stethoscope to check the baby's heart beat and knows how to protect her patients from infection. Hers is a call and is out to assist mothers, she changes a minimal fee of Kshs.500 per delivery.
