Tsuruda Kameko is a middle-aged midwife who had struck the million dollar jackpot. She was tired of working at a Tokyo hospital, with all its abortions and complicated natural childbirths, and so with the money won, she decided to retire from her job and travel the world. Her first stop was Mihamajima, and there she met Choro, who had impressed upon her the need for more midwives around the area. She decided to open a midwifery clinic there, and called it "Tsurukame".

One day, Maria shows up at Tsurukame, and is surprised to see Kameko there, as back in Tokyo, she had met Kameko before while having her check up done at the hospital where Kameko worked. Maria then tells Kameko that she is pregnant... --NHK
