Call the midwife.


Such a great series!  Based on the memoirs of Jenny Worth, it tells the story of a group of newly graduated midwives practicing in the slums of London's East End in the 1950s.  The midwives are spirited and resourceful, the mothers are courageous and the babies irresistible.  The 50s English setting has its nostalgic moments for me it was the bicycles that everyone rides that appealed most.  Altogether, the friendships and dramatic situations portrayed make for a delightful story about a vocation that continues to be a valued part of community health care.
