Inspired by the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, Call the Midwife follows the nurses, midwives and nuns from Nonnatus House, who visit the expectant mothers of Poplar, providing the poorest women with the best possible care. In Season 4, the community prepares to enter a new decade — the 1960s.

Call the Midwife: Season 4, Episode 5

Sundays at 8pm on WGBH 2

Sister Julienne questions the nature of absolute faith when she meets a Christian Science couple who refuse medicine for their newborn. Things become more complex when they’re accused of harming their child. Meanwhile, Barbara tries to communicate with a pregnant woman who can’t speak English. Using the woman’s young son to translate presents a new set of problems. Sister Mary Cynthia returns, and Fred meets a woman who catches his eye.
