Follow newly qualified midwife Jenny Lee as she arrives in the East End of London to begin her career. Revisit the first season of Call the Midwife on WXXI-TV on Saturdays at 10 p.m. beginning January 25, 2014. Based on the best-selling memoirs of Jennifer Worth, Call the Midwife is a moving and intimate story of midwifery in London’s East End in the 1950s. The series follows a young Jenny Lee as she and her fellow midwives, attached to an order of nursing nuns, navigate the crowded East End streets teeming with children, workers, and a culture remarkably different from the wealthy English countryside where Jenny was raised.
