Overview

Call the Midwife: Seasons 1 & 2 contains the first two seasons of the hit BBC period drama, as well as the Call the Midwife soundtrack CD, and is available exclusively at Barnes & Noble.

Season 1 Synopsis:
A moving, intimate, funny and, above all, true-to-life look at the colorful stories of midwifery and families in East London in the Fifties, based on the best-selling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth. When Jenny Lee first arrives in Poplar, she knows nothing about hardship, poverty or indeed, life itself. Attached to an order of nursing nuns at Nonnatus House, Jenny is part of a team of midwives who visit expectant mothers, providing the poorest women with the best possible care. Here, the streets teem with children and with just one eight-bed maternity ward to serve the whole district; most deliveries take place at home. Following Jenny as she travels through the streets to meet her patients - like Conchita, who is on her 25th pregnancy and Mary, a prostitute and pregnant at just 15 - Call the Midwife offers a fascinating insight into a community on the brink of huge social change.

Season 2 Synopsis:
Based on the bestselling memoirs by Jennifer Worth, Call the Midwife follows Jenny Lee, a young midwife in 1950s London's working class East End, providing the poorest women with the best possible care. Season Two continues to follow Jenny and the other midwives as they deal with all the problems the neighborhood of Poplar has to throw at them. A fascinating portrayal of birth, life, death and a community on the brink of huge social change, Call the Midwife offers a gripping insight into a way of life that is so drastically different from how we live now.
