Summary
A moving, intimate, funny, and 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, and 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 warm 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
