Call the Midwife is a memoir written by Jennifer Worth. It is the first book in her trilogy of memoirs, which also includes Shadows of the Workhouse and Farewell to the East End. The book was first published in 2002 and has since gained widespread acclaim.

Set in the East End of London in the 1950s, Call the Midwife tells the story of Jennifer Worth's experiences as a young midwife working in the deprived and impoverished area of Poplar. It offers a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the people living in this post-war era, particularly the expectant mothers and the challenges they faced during childbirth.

Through her interactions with the diverse residents of Poplar, Worth provides an intimate account of her job and the often difficult, yet rewarding, situations she encountered on a daily basis. From assisting with home births to delivering babies in the maternity ward, the book explores the highs and lows of midwifery in a time when medical advancements were limited and social conditions were harsh.

Call the Midwife also delves into the lives of the nuns and other midwives who worked alongside Worth, highlighting the unique camaraderie and support that developed among them. The memoir not only offers a detailed insight into the historical and medical aspects of midwifery but also delves into the personal struggles and triumphs of the characters involved.

Jennifer Worth's writing style is engaging and compassionate, highlighting her deep empathy for the women and families she encountered. Her vivid descriptions of the East End and its inhabitants, as well as her ability to capture the emotional depth of each story, make Call the Midwife a truly captivating read.

The success of Call the Midwife led to the creation of a television series of the same name, which has further popularized the memoir. The series successfully captures the essence of Worth's memoir and has garnered a large and dedicated fan base.

Overall, Call the Midwife offers an absorbing glimpse into a bygone era of midwifery and paints a vivid picture of the human experience in a challenging and impoverished environment. It is a touching and inspiring memoir that will leave readers with a deep appreciation for the important work of midwives and the strength of the women they assist.
