SUPERSU; The Supersonic Midwife

My friend Susie is a midwife. She is an incredible midwife, who has helped me to give birth to Cucumber. She is sort of a superhero in my mind, and this is dedicated to her.

Our story unfolds when we meet Susie, a slightly gawky youngster with dreams that extend way past her mere five years of life. When learning about the women enslaved in Mitzraim who gave birth to six children at a time, Suzie wants details
As she slowly, slowly, slowly, matured, Susie found that her morbid curiosity had noble purpose. She can smell pregnancy, and when she does…stand back:
Susie is transformed into…

Look, up in the sky!

Is it a bird?

Is it a plane?

No, it’s


Faster than a C-section, more powerful than motorised forceps, able to catch babies in a single bound, Supersu is dedicated to the never-ending battle that is prenatal care.
She stands for truth, justice and the NHS way!

With her rousing cry of, “Stand and deliver!” Supersu’s superpowers include being able to monitor foetal heartbeats with her supersonic hearing, and her ability to calm a distressed mother to be with her hypnotic laser eyes. But her most valuable and famous superpower is, of course, Supersu’s voice.

And now we begin our story:
One fateful morning on her regular six minute one hundred and eighty mile drive to Hospital, Supersu’s supersonic nose picks up the scent of a pregnant woman in transitionary dilatory distress… two miles back.
Supersu reverses back and spies a heavily pregnant Albanian woman, screaming

“OW, OW” in Albanian.

Our heroine, (no, not that heroine!) tries to placate the immigrant woman with her hypnotic laser vision, and finds that the woman is impervious to her super vision power. Supersu proceeds to utilise her most valuable of all her superpowers, her voice.

She uses soothing words, telling her, “You’re okay” and
So, you think you’re the first person to ever have a baby?”

With those comforting thoughts, Supersu whisks the Albanian woman into her Susiemobile. Supersu stamps on the accelerator of the Susiemobile, her car door trapping the ignored and unnoticed Albanian Father-to-be by the corner of his shirt. As she reaches a comfortable cruising speed of 130 miles per hour, she is only a streak of light, bypassing all the speed cameras on the way. As the Adrenaline slowly clears her supersonic ears, she hears the Albanian father- to-be shouting,

“Aclama, aclama” which Supersu interprets to mean, ”Faster, Faster”,

but which actually means, “My legs, my legs!”

Upon arrival at the Hospital, Supersu lifts the writhing woman and slams her down onto a waiting gurney. Supersu then instructs the senior Doctor and the other mere mortal midwives to wheel the Albanian pregnant woman into the labour ward and await further instructions, until she hears the cry,

Supersu, Supersu, we need you!” Supersu turns around to see mere mortal midwife Showanda, a three hundred pound woman, shuffling towards Supersu. Supersu rushes into the labour ward where the Albaninan mother to be is hyperventilating into a paper bag.

What do we do, Supersu?”, asks the consultant specialist Doctor above all Doctors. “ Well,” Supersu says, “First things first!” and she proceeds to press a hidden button on her midwife watch, which produces a concealed panel from behind the wall.

On it are an array of Supersu’s own pain-relieving devices

(only available through Supersu herself or on the Home Shopping Network at 08880 232-45556, that’s 08880 232-45556, Don’t delay, keep pain at bay, call today!).

Anyway, Supersu pulls out her favourite pain relieving device, a metal ball on a chain covered with spikes, called, ‘The Tickler’ and the Albanian woman eyes bulge with what Supersu takes as a sign of approval. Suddenly, Supersu’s supersonic hearing picks up the raised heartbeats of the unborn Albanian infant. She pushes away her panel of pain-relieving devices

(available through Supersu herself or the Home Shopping Network at 08880 232-45556, that’s 08880 232-45556 Call now! Calls are charged at Fifty two pounds every two minutes. You must be over childbearing age to call.)

and shouts “It’s time, the baby must come out NOW!!!” All the mortal midwives and the Top, top, top Doctor, stand back and let Supersu do her stuff.

Supersu goes over to the heaving woman and very gently and very calmly takes her hand in hers, looks her in the eyes and says in her smallest most delicate of all voices,


Will Susperu manage to catch the baby?

Will Paul McCartney and Heather Mills ever get back together?

Will Mr Kasamba remove all internet access from Kasamba’s home?

Find out next time on Supersu- The supersonic midwife.

:insert sound of flör being blown away:

'sbeen a superlong while since i've read anything remotely worth perusing [in terms of narrative such as this]. next time i'm over in [dreary -pardon] UK again, i think i shall like to go and meet this Su (yes, even before piccadilly circus and the doc martens store that has me salivating five thousand miles away)..and the cliffhangers?
moi pulse is far too fast to head to sleep now..(goody sunrise in 4 hrs..maybe she'll have a sequel up by then..)

At 9:06 AM, Blogger kasamba said...

She is a fantastic part of London!!!!

the story is never ending as is Supersu's quest for truth, justice and the NHS way!

Hubby is very tolerant- how long can that last????

Thanks for your help oh blogging guru above all blogging gurus.

Maybe it was the forces of evil...
Cue twilight zone music- doo doo doo doo...

I only use the top, top, top doctor above all doctors!!!

Worth the wait- glad to hear it!!!!

Next Contender:
Like I said to Jameel the forces of EVIL may have tried to shut me down. EVIL being an acronym for Eccentric Villians Implimenting Lousiness.

Stay tuned!

Thuwwwwuk(sound of giant spatula picking flor up from floor)

Thank you for your rapt attention to Supersu- I'm sure she would love to meet you, in her doc martens and tell you what came next... dum de dum dum dum.

You see? This morning over breakfast the wife and I were discussing this post (what surprises you more -- that we have breakfast together, or that we talk about blogs?) and I had mentioned that normally, I immensely enjoy Tanta Kasamba's writings, yet I just didn't connect with this post in particular. And my wife laughed and said "well of COURSE -- because you're a MAN".


At 4:17 PM, Blogger kasamba said...

LOL! But how would we draw her???

Kollel Mama:

Happy to make you happy!
Gut Shabbos to you too!

You're right, they are mashehu!

Unless of course you are allergic to nuts...

Do all her charges arrive out bathed and disciplined? if so, she must apply for a patent at once!

At 11:17 AM, Blogger Pragmatician said...

Kasamba-With long sleeves and a Shaitel (if she's married) of course:)

At 12:45 PM, Blogger kasamba said...

I'm so impressed - you linked up to the uk patent office!!!
she doesn't need a patent- she has a direct link to G-d.

But NOT a housecoat I hope!!!

At 2:19 PM, Blogger Bonnie B said...

A 62-year-old has become Britain's oldest mother, according to a media report.

Dr Patricia Rashbrook has given birth to a 6lb 10oz baby boy, whom she and her husband described as "beautiful".

BBC News reported that Dr Rashbrook, who lives in Lewes, East Sussex, had a Caesarean section which went smoothly

At 1:30 PM, Blogger backcare said...

very good blogger site!.

Do you know BBC News (14/09/2006) Acupuncture for low back pain is cost-effective and works, according to medical researchers. Two studies on suggest a short course of acupuncture would benefit patients and healthcare providersThe cost is well below the threshold used by officials to decide whether the NHS can afford to fund a set treatment, they said. Up to 80% of UK residents experience back pain at some point in their lives, costing the NHS £480m a year.—(BBC News 14/09/2006)

And, What do you think about it? Something as follow:

Chinese acupuncture practitioner had almost been accused for website’s ads in Bristol

Dr Zhentong Han is a Chinese registered acupuncturist with twenty years of clinical experience. He is very popular among the patients in the area with outstanding technique. The appointments for him in the clinic in Bradford were always full, however, at Bristol, another place where he set up his business; there were troubles from the competitions in the same field.

It started at the acupunctural website of Dr Han(, which occupied the NO.1 place in a international websites about acupuncture ( Because of the large number of patients attracted by this website which introduced traditional Chinese acupuncture for backache therapy,and top position in yahoo and google. it caught great attention of other businesses in the same field in a very short time. Some practitioner even registered company names using key words about acupuncture , and notified Dr Han and other practitioners to stop using the some key words for advertising the website. Or else they would probably be charged by the law.

Dr Han claimed that he regretted deeply for the matter, but he didn’t want to get involved in this legal dispute, for the purpose of having a website is not to score high on the network, but to have more patients understand the most veracious Chinese traditional acupunctural techniques through his website, so to help more patients get rid of the pain.
