Call the Midwife Seasons 1 & 2 DVD Sets
A moving, intimate, funny and, above all, true-to-life look at the colorful stories of midwifery and families in East London in the 50s, based on the bestselling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth. When Jenny Lee first arrives in Poplar, she knows nothing about hardship, poverty or, indeed, life itself. Attached to an order of nursing nuns at Nonnatus house, Jenny is part of a team of midwives who visit expectant mothers, providing the poorest women with the best possible care. Here, the streets teem with children and with just one 8-bed maternity ward to serve the whole district; most deliveries take place at home. Following Jenny as she travels through the streets to meet her patients - Call the Midwife offers a fascinating insight into a community on the brink of huge social change.
