Call the Midwife is a delightful read for those who enjoy books about midwifery and nursing history. Jennifer Worth started working as a midwife in London’s East End in the 1950s, at just 22. She provides fascinating details of their work and how they adapted to the conditions of extreme poverty, bomb- damaged houses, limited access to water, and working with women who had more than 10 children. Worth highlights the strength and resilience of the women and the support the community of women offered each other.
