Synopsis

The highest-rated drama in BBC history returns to PBS Presents in March 2013

Less than a year after the first season finale, PBS’s hit series Call the Midwife returns to Sunday nights this spring with an all-new eight-episode season.

Fans of Downton Abbey and Mad Men have fallen in love with this candid look at post-war London. In the 1950s, twenty-two-year-old Jenny Lee leaves her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwife in London's East End slums. While delivering babies all over the city, Jenny encounters a colorful cast of women—from the plucky, warm-hearted nuns with whom she lives, to the woman with twenty-four children who can't speak English, to the prostitutes of the city's seedier side.

Based on Jennifer Worth's bestselling memoirs, Call the Midwife will continue to delight its millions of viewers in the U.S.

    Loved this book. Being a Perinatal nurse it was interesting to see just how much stuff has changed and maybe not all for the better.

    Exellent pulls you back in time that shockingly shows you how people used to live not that long ago. When old people say you dont know your born you dont. The story is set just after the war in the eastend and shows you how the nhs was launched with people mistrusting its for everyone the storys told about reall people ate often heart breaking espesialy the workhouse ones.

    The first season was fabulous in so many ways... can't wait to join them for more adventures. To see the progress made in 50+ years from medical car to cars makes my head spin!
