“The real heroes are the women. The mothers.” Those are the words of Jennifer Worth, a British nurse midwife whose memoirs are the basis of the British series “Call the Midwife.”

Set in the 1950s, “Call the Midwife” tells the story of a group of nuns and nurses who provided maternity care to women in East London. They were funded by the British National Health Service.
