Call the Midwife image

Britain's smash hit "Call the Midwife" premieres Sunday, Sept. 30 at 7 - watch out "Downton Abbey", this one's a winner too!  Check out this moving and intimate insight into the colorful world of midwifery and family life in 1950's East London.  We are introduced to the community through the eyes of young nurse Jenny Lee as she arrives at Nonnatus House to live and work as a midwife alongside an Order of Nuns.

As Jenny comes to terms with her new life, we meet some phenomenal people who prove that their warmth, resilience and determination are to be admired beyond measure. At the heart of this world are the Sisters of St. Raymond Nonnatus who have been active in the East End as Anglican nursing nuns since the beginning of the 20th century. 


TUNE IN:  "Call the Midwife" premieres Sunday, September 30 at 7 p.m. and airs each following Sunday at 7 p.m. through Nov. 4.
