This series is about the true-to-life stories of a group of midwives working in London’s East End in the 1950s. Newly-qualified midwife Jenny Lee arrives at Nonnatus House, a convent in one of the poorest areas of London. Jenny is welcomed by the nuns and befriended by the other midwives. We are introduced to the local community through the eyes of the young nurse as she cycles out to tend to her patients. Although the life that greets Jenny is a world away from what she’s used to, she immerses herself in the births, deaths, intrigues and romances of a community she rapidly learns to love.
It has good storylines and it’s interesting and enjoyable to watch.
