Premises of Call with Midwife
The story involves Jenny Lee, a freshly certified midwife, as well as the work of midwives and the nuns of Nonnatus House, a nursing convent and part of an Anglican religious order, as they deal with medical difficulties in the 1950s in London’s critically destitute East End. Many nursing duties are performed by the Sisters and midwives throughout the community. However, with between 80 and 100 infants born each month in Poplar alone, the major focus is on assisting mothers in having healthy pregnancies and caring for their many children.
The first series, which begins in early 1957, deals with the “Baby Boom,” East End poverty, and postwar immigration. The second series, set in 1958, features the introduction of gas and air as a pain reliever, explosive munitions, a TB outbreak, a baby born with spina bifida, and the condemnation of the Nonnatus House structure. In the third series, set in 1959, cystic fibrosis, polio, end-of-life care, and midwifery are all depicted in a prison setting. In the 1960 set fourth series, with a patient with typhoid, the effects of thalidomide, LGBT rights, and syphilis among sex workers, the Child Migrants Program, the threat of nuclear warfare (including emergency response guidelines issued by local Civil Defense Corps), LGBT rights, and syphilis among sex workers are depicted.
Domestic violence, an explosion at the local docks, interracial marriage, female genital mutilation, mental health, and the introduction of Reggie, a recurrent character with Down syndrome, are all featured in the sixth season, which is set in 1962. The seventh season, set in 1963, has the first main character of color, Nurse Lucille Anderson, as well as plots involving dementia, racial abuse, leprosy, and meningitis. The eighth series, set in 1964, explores issues such as abortion (which was not allowed until 1967), sickle cell illness, newborns born with cleft lip and palate, and intersex persons. The ninth series, set in 1965, deals with diphtheria, a blind expecting woman, and Nonnatus House’s ongoing position and importance in the society.
Call the Midwife Season 10, set in 1966, contrasts Nonnatus House’s treatment with that of the private Lady Emily Clinic in Mayfair, as well as PKU, diabetes, and the abortion debate on the brink of legalization. The conditions in a mission in South Africa, the Outer Hebrides, and the order orphanage are all explored in the Christmas special episodes.
