A fascinating slice of social history – Jennifer Worth’s tales of midwifery in the 1950s London, maintaining a major BBC TV series.Jennifer Worth came from a protected background when she became a midwife in the Docklands in the 1950s.The conditions in which many women gave birth only half a century ago have been horrific, not only because of their eminently impoverished environment, but also because of what they were supposed to endure.But while Jennifer witnessed brutality and tragedy, she met incredible kindness and understanding, tempered by much of Cockney’s humor.She also got the confidences of some whose life was truly stranger, more poignant and terrifying than ever could be told in fiction.Attached to an order of nuns who had worked in the slums since the 1870s, Jennifer tells the story of not only the women she treated, but also the community of nuns (including the one accused of stealing Hatton Garden jewellery) and the camaraderie of midw Ives, with whom she trained.It’s funny, disturbing and incredibly moving, Jennifer’s stories bring the colourful world of the East End to life in the 1950s.
