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. :)
