If you've wonder how life was in London in the 50's, look no further, PBS has the answer for you in BBC's CALL THE MIDWIFE.
Based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth; the story follows twenty-two year old Jenny, who in 1957 leaves her comfortable home to become a midwife in London's East End slums. She expects to find a hospital, and is surprised to find that the clinic is a convent: Nonnatus House. Working alongside her fellow nurses and the medically-trained nuns, Jenny has her eyes opened to the harsh living conditions. But she also discovers the warm hearts and the bravery of the mothers; each one a heroine in Jenny's eyes. IMBD

Jenny is played by Jessica Raine. Vanessa Redgraves is the mature Jenny who narrates the story. Lets just say you get to see a lot of babies being born, and of course, the unique situations these young midwives are put in during the course of the series.

I love this show to bits. Seriously, it’s a medical drama where the medicine is the drama and the characters are so engaging. I just finished third episode where I held back all the tears. Chummy is a blast and I hope we see more of her. I love the nuns too—snarky nuns are fabulous! -drawntotheocean
