If you loved the TV adaptation, why not read the original books of Jennifer Worth's stories of being a midwife in London in the '50s? The characters you will meet, both colleagues and patients, stay with you for a long time
This is a funny, at times disturbing, memoir of a world that has now changed beyond measure.
Re-released to tie in with a new BBC adaptation, you must read this superbly moving but also witty story.
A poignant, funny and enlightening book
