Plot Summary

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. She is surprised to find that she will be living in a convent: Nonnatus House. Working alongside fellow nurses and the medically-trained nuns, Jenny has her eyes opened to the harsh living conditions of the slums, but she also discovers the warm hearts and the bravery of the mothers. Even after Jenny leaves Nonnatus, she continues to chronicle the lives of the midwives who have become her family. Written by L. Hamre

Trivia Long before Jennifer Worth's memoirs were filmed, she spotted Miranda Hart and knew that she would be perfect to play Camilla "Chummy" Fortescue-Cholmeley-Browne, the six-foot-one, ungainly, clumsy midwife who features in her books. Hart, who also hails from an aristocratic background like her character, agreed to take the role of Chummy if the books were ever filmed. See more »
Goofs When Vanessa Redgrave (the voice of mature Jenny) appears on screen for the first time, the on-screen caption gives the date as 2005 and she is considering writing her memoirs. However by 2005, the first two volumes (Call the Midwife and Shadows of the Workhouse) had already been published. See more »
