The Author (Goodreads): [Jennifer] Worth, born Jennifer Lee while her parents were on holiday in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, was raised in Amersham, Buckinghamshire. Jennifer died in May 2011 after a short illness, leaving her husband Philip, two daughters and three grandchildren. One of course knew of the reputation of the rougher parts of the docklands and stayed clear, one also knew of the rich history of those parts – after all, it was all in the name, wasn’t it: East India docks for East India company? The Narrator: Nicola Barber is an Audie Award-winning narrator whose voice can be heard in television and radio commercials and popular video games such as World of Warcraft.

For example, there are an elderly nun who is somehow crazy, a mother who has given birth to over twenty three children, teenage sex workers, and rough and tough dock workers. However, the series took on a life of its own and grew far beyond the original characters into ten episodes with eleven being in the offing and eight, hour long episodes each. Peggy and Frank's parents both died within 6 months of each other and the children were left destitute.

Shadows of the Workhouse’ (2005; reissued 2008) and ‘Farewell to the East End’ (2009) also became bestsellers. Jennifer Worth’s first book in The Midwife Trilogy, The Midwife, has since been adapted for the screen. The production responded that the series was a period drama, not a documentary, and "highly accurate to the time it depicts".

Alive is not living, existing is not thriving, and resuscitating someone back to a half-vegetative state is tantamount to committing a crime against humanity.

The book is infused with a touching narration of an outbreak of tuberculosis, two females sharing one spouse, and, worse still, a mind-blowing case wherein a prostitute who served all the crews of a ship. Jennifer wrote the first volume of her memoirs by hand and sent them to Coates to read, and Coates later served as advisor on the books and the TV adaptation.

But it was not until the beginning of the last century that midwifery as a profession came to be taken seriously. I have to say it is probably mainly a book for women as it deals with - as the title says -midwifery and therefore babies and births and medical complications as well as women's home lives in the '50s and '60s. However, her books, especially those which were reissued, became instant hits and shifted over a million copies in her home country alone. We get to meet many a significant people from history, such as Florence Nightingale, and chuckle silently when the impertinent Sister Monica Joan wrote to her about being imprisoned in her home. I find it heart-warming; it's so nice to watch something where people don't get shot, nothing explodes and people just go about their daily lives and deal with their problems with the help of the midwives and nuns.However, with between 80 and 100 babies being born each month in Poplar alone, the primary work is to help bring safe childbirth to women in the area and to look after their countless newborns. The third series, set in 1959, depicts cystic fibrosis, polio, caring for the terminally ill and midwifery in a prison context. Let us know what you think about this review of The Midwife Trilogy and Sarina’s great review in the comments! And I lived in West India Quay in a gorgeously luxurious apartment rising tall above the Docklands with spectacular city views and the river passing quietly by.

I’ll admit to being thrown just a bit starting the audiobook, wherein there was a prologue not introduced to the first BBC series episode. According to the World Health Organisation, nurses and midwives account for nearly 50 per cent of the global health force so if you know someone who practices as a midwife or if you yourself were supported during childbirth, make sure to share a heartfelt thank you for all the work they do. Interesting too, were the descriptions of the extreme poverty and life for thousands next to London's port and docks. The book also enables readers to follow Jennifer's personal story, as she discovers the amazing resilience of a population still bearing the scars of war, and the vibrant community of nuns with whom she lives and who teach her the skills of midwifery.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. In the Midst of Life, the standalone book that followed the series, ought to be included in medical studies not just for nurses but for doctors of all specialties and seniorities, too. However, on a special episode which was released on Christmas 2014, the elderly English actress Vanessa Redgrave appears as the aged Jennifer Worth. Don't get me wrong, they are still good but just quite so good as the first but definitely well worth a read!
