The story follows new midwife, Jenny Lee, along with the midwives and nuns of Nonnatus House, a nursing convent belonging to the Anglican religious order. The show portrays important historical events of the time, such as the baby boom era and the introduction of the contraceptive pill, and how they impact the character?s lives and work.
