Call The Midwife: Season One

Call The Midwife is a moving, intimate, funny and, above all, true-to-life look at the exhilarating stories of a midwife in poverty stricken East London in the 1950s, based on Jennifer Wroth's best-selling memoirs.

Jenny Lee knows nothing about hardship, poverty, or, indeed, life itself. Direct from nursing school, Jenny joins an order of nursing nuns at Nonnatus House and a team of midwives providing the poorest women in London with the best possible care. The life that greets Jenny is a world away from what she's used to. The streets teem with children - families of between six and ten children are commonplace - and with just one eight-bed maternity ward to serve the whole district, most deliveries take place at home. The drama follows Jenny as she meets her patients for the first time - women like Conchita, who is on her 25th pregnancy, and Mary, a prostitute, pregnant and just 15 years old - all while hiding her own secret past.

Call The Midwife is a fascinating portrayal of birth, life, and death in a community on the brink of huge social change, offering a gripping insight into a world that is so drastically different from how we live now.
