She did not leave for her mother’s house because she knows that her mother would not accommodate her and would send her back to where she is coming from. Therefore, she left for an unknown land. As she was on her way to a new island to live, she went into labor and


Would give birth to her first child who happens to be a male at the boundary of the new island she is headed for. It was in the middle of the night that this happens, many of the farmers have left their farmland and have gotten to their respective homes. What helped her


Was that she has been assisting her mother who happened to be the midwifery that many pregnant women ran to as the wife of the priest in the island to help them with the delivery of their pregnancy. She has been tutored by her mother of the position she needs to be if she is


Alone and wants to deliver herself. The woman was telling her this saying to her that she does not know what the future holds and as a person she needs to be prepared for anything that in the future, because no one could predict the kind of husband she will be married to,


She may get married to someone who is not rich with her husband expecting her to take care of her pregnancy herself and in that process it means that she would be responsible for her child birth herself. On another note her mother has told her that, as farming is the main


Job of the people within the island, her husband may have gone to the farm by the time she goes into labor when she takes in or it may be in the middle of the night and could not be rushed to the midwives homes to put to bed there, thence, she will have to deliver her baby

Immediately she gives birth to the baby in her and they would lie that the baby aspirated and died during his aspiration. Since none would be watching them as they perform that dastardly act, they would perform their enterprise on her baby and would escape it. This she


Does not want to happen, she has to protect the baby in her at all cost, because she remembers that when she was young, and have been taken to the gods and goddess of fertility in the island, those ones have told her that she will give birth to many children in the world


And have particularly told her that she needs to guide seriously her first pregnancy because irrespective of whom she marries the evil ones would go all out against her first pregnancy wanting the pregnancy to be terminated and if they could not do that they would


Be planning on how they would eliminate her first born child the first seven days of her delivery. This the gods and goddesses of fertility in the island say the baby would be a savior to many within and without the island, this they would see, because this she has signed with


The Divine one before she leaves for this temporal world that she would give birth to a child who will be a deliverer to the people.
