The thriller drama “Call the Midwife” tells the story of the 1950s-1960s and talks about a group of midwives who at the time were working in the Nonnatus House in London. The lack of birth control pills led to multiple abortions, unwanted children and other troubles that are not familiar to modern society…
When will the series “Call the Midwife” Season 9 be released?
The dramatic picture “Call the Midwife” will continue on January 5, 2020. The series is one of the few pictures that has not lost a single viewer in pursuit of ratings. 10.5 million people are viewed every season in their native UK, while this figure does not fall, unlike other TV shows.
Midwife Jenny Lee decides to go to a new job where the Nonnatus House, known for its loyal attitude to women in childbirth, turns out to be. Here you can get the help of professional midwives, as well as nuns, who also have skills in medicine. Anyone who asks for help will fall under the watchful eye of House staff.
But there are factors that make this work literally a hell for midwives. Nonnatus House is located in one of the poorest areas of London – in the district of Poplar, which is located in the East End. Every month, no less than 80 women give birth, and this only adds to the work of our heroine. Jenny Lee is simply out of her strength, trying to help those in need.
In life, Jenny and her colleagues have a hard time – not every child is saved, and sometimes children are born with injuries or obvious signs of illness. Some women spend their entire lives in the dreams of offspring, because they have not been able to become pregnant for many years and have lost all hope that their dreams can come true.
But tragic cases make midwives only stronger and more enduring. To protect women in labor from possible problems, girls try to use all their skills and prevent the birth of unwanted children. One of the episodes, where there is a scene about illegal abortion, caused a lot of controversy in the British public, but eventually the conflict was resolved.
In season 9, the stories from the lives of nurses from the Nonnatus House will continue. Now the story will be closely intertwined with the life of one of the heroines, but who exactly will become it – time will tell.
