I think it's possible, even probable, that she had a special knack for midwifery because of a latent magical talent. Shen-shen is relatively new to the Sun Folk, generationally speaking, and there must have been other midwives.

But if Shen-shen supplanted her it may have been due to a knack that made her better in some way.
