Aunt Mandy was a Mid-Wife and traveled all over delivering babies. She delivered most of the children in her area and even delivered most of her own grandchildren. Sometimes she stayed gone for weeks at a time. She made herself available to the ones that needed her, sometimes without much pay. If there was a sick baby somewhere, she would go help take care of it.
