Call the Midwife
'Call The Midwife' is Jennifer Worth's true story about the East End in the 1950s. Arriving in the Docklands at the age of 22, midwife Jennifer has to deal with the brothels of Cable Street, gang warfare and meths drinkers in bombsites as she gets used to living in a big new city.
Funny, disturbing, incredibly moving and sometimes terrifying, this is a story that does for midwifery what James Herriot did for veterinary medicine.
A book that was nominated for various awards, it brings to life both the colourful world of the East End in the 1950s and the community and camaraderie of the midwives with whom she trained.
