Another series coming from BBC
I just finished this memoir, The Midwife, by Jennifer Worth who was a midwife during the 1950's in London's East End. It was an engaging read and I enjoyed it immensely. Any woman who has ever given birth and really anyone else will find the midwife's work interesting and informative. But most of all, I enjoyed the story of the personal growth of a young woman has she stretches and gains skills in her service as a midwife while coming to understand and strengthen herself. Loved it!
It pays to read one's emails from PBS for that is where I learned about a new BBC series entitled Call the Midwife which is based on Jennifer Worth's book. It is also when I became aware of the book as well and then found it at the library. The series is slated to begin broadcasting in the United States this Fall on PBS stations. I can't wait!
