Call the midwife


I was having dinner with my friend, Krissy, the other night, and she told me about a show she was enjoying, Call the Midwife.  It's a BBC show, so I assumed I would like it (love me some Downtown Abbey), and I was right.

I would say don't watch it if you've never had a child, but either way, it will mess you up something fierce.  In fact, during the 1st episode, I texted Krissy and told her that I needed an epidural just watching.

It really is amazing, though.  The show is based on journals of a British midwife from the 1950s, and it has completely sucked me in.  Noel keeps saying, "should you be watching this while you're pregnant?" And yes, yes I should be.  The stories are incredible and the characters are so fun.  And, oh, how I'm grateful for people who take care of all the pregnant ladies and babies, (and for clean hospitals). 

PS.  The first 2 seasons are on Netflix if you're interested. :)

Call the midwife is brilliant, really enjoy it and I'm so excited that Downton will be back on British screens in a matter of weeks now :) Another BBC drama to look out for is The Crimson Field about British nurses on the front line in WW1. It was only a six parter I think but really worth a watch. You are glowing byhe way :) x

I LOVE this show!! I was so sad when the Netflix episodes ended. I also really liked "Bomb Girls" on Netflix. It was kind of a similar vibe.

I've never heard of this show, but it sounds interesting! LOVE your baby bump, i'm going to viciously experience pregnancy again through you, okay?!

Nikki said...

OK I have never heard of this show, but based on your comments, I am not going to watch it. I don't have kids yet, so I fear this show might make that permanent! But I do love binge watching shows on Netflix!

I am going to pass on this, I am already nervous about the whole childbirth process.
Maybe after I experience my first I can bookmark it to my "watch" list ;)

Look at you - all adorable and cute! And I am definitely checking out that show. With my mother. And maybe finally she'll get off my back about having a baby :P

Carla said...

That was a Bookclub book last year and I really enjoyed it! The girl is a great storyteller and it's crazy to think these are real stories!

Katie said...

I love that show, too! I got sucked in while I was pregnant with Everett. It made it even more magical, somehow. I want to read the book, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. :)

Jessica Loveland said...

I loved it too (and watched it while I was preggo as well) and had my first midwife then and lead to a home birth!
PS....I love the long chevron skirt today...had lots of complements when I wore it yesterday....had a women run me down to ask me where I got it too!
