Biographical note:

Jennifer Worth trained as a nurse at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading. She then moved to London to train as a midwife. She later became a staff nurse at the Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel, and then ward sister and sister at the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital in Euston. Music had always been her passion, and in 1973 Jennifer left nursing in order to study music intensively. She gained the Licentiate of the London College of Music in 1974 and was awarded a Fellowship ten years later. Jennifer married Philip Worth in 1963 and they lived together in Hertfordshire. Jennifer died in May 2011, leaving her husband, two daughters and three grandchildren.

Main description:

The highest-rated drama in BBC history returns to PBS Presents in March 2013
 
Less than a year after the first season finale, PBS’s hit series Call the Midwife returns to Sunday nights this spring with an all-new eight-episode season.

Fans of Downton Abbey and Mad Men have fallen in love with this candid look at post-war London. In the 1950s, twenty-two-year-old Jenny Lee leaves her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwife in London's East End slums. While delivering babies all over the city, Jenny encounters a colorful cast of women—from the plucky, warm-hearted nuns with whom she lives, to the woman with twenty-four children who can't speak English, to the prostitutes of the city's seedier side.
           
Based on Jennifer Worth's bestselling memoirs, Call the Midwife will continue to delight its millions of viewers in the U.S.
