Call the Midwife, based on the best-selling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth, returns for a third series. Nonnatus House opens its doors to warmly welcome the audience back into 1950s East End London and follows Poplar’s community of exceptional midwives and nursing nuns. Join them for a new year of births, babies, and bicycling, as well as some blossoming romance.

This moving, intimate, funny and true-to-life series, based on the best-selling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth, tells colorful stories of midwifery and families in London’s East End in the 1950s. Jenny Lee, a young woman raised in the wealthy English countryside, has chosen to become a nurse and now, as a newly qualified midwife, has gone to work in the poorest area of the city.

Attached to an order of nursing nuns at Nonnatus House, Jenny is part of a team of women who minister to expectant mothers, many of whom give birth at home in appalling conditions. The drama follows Jenny as she meets her patients and learns to love the people who live in the East End.
