Call the Midwife

I was deeply moved when I watched PBS’s “Call the Midwife”. It captures the humanness, beauty & intimacy of homebirth. Set in the 1950s, this six part series is a moving & intimate insight into the colorful world of midwifery & family life in London’s East End. We are introduced to the local community through the eyes of young nurse Jenny Lee as she lives and works as a midwife alongside the Nuns of the Order of St. Raymond of Nonnatus.
