Based on the bestselling memoirs by Jennifer Worth, Call the Midwife follows Jenny Lee, a young midwife in 1950s London's working class East End, providing the poorest women with the best possible care.
New challenges and traumas await Jenny and the other midwives in season two including a strange woman dressed in rags, an abandoned baby, and the introduction of a new pain-killer, gas, which proves such a hit that all the women want some. A fascinating portrayal of birth, life, death and a community on the brink of huge social change, Call the Midwife offers a gripping insight into a way of life that is so drastically different from how we live now. 8 episodes, 355 minutes, 3 DVD discs.
