Call the Midwife (UK)

Newly qualified midwife Jenny Lee and the midwives and nuns of Nonnatus House cope with the medical problems in the deprived Poplar district of East London in the 1950s. The sisters and midwives carry out many nursing duties across the community. 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.

Character Bio

Sister Monica Joan photo
Born into a leading titled family, Sister Monica Joan was one of the first women in Britain to qualify as a midwife. In the closing years of the 19th century, this was seen as a radical act. Her additional decision to become a nun scandalized her relatives, who never came to terms with her life choices. Sister Monica Joan dedicated her entire adult life to providing midwifery services to the poor of the East End. Now in her 90's, Sister Monica Joan has retired from practice, but lives full-time at Nonnatus House, cared for by her fellow sisters. She has an eccentric, mercurial personality, and is obsessed with cake, astrology and knitting, in no particular order.
