What to expect in Call the Midwife Season 13
This season puts us into 1969. More and more women are choosing a home birth, and that means some changes in the way the midwives are taught. They need to get with the times—or more like, they need to accept that people are turning to traditions of the past. They will make sure babies are born safely, whether it’s at the hospital or at home.
Meanwhile, we’ll see health challenges hit the nuns, nurses, and midwives of Nonnatus House. There are also challenges of the time, as poor housing comes up as a concern for the area.
As usual, there are plenty of standalone storylines that the new mothers bring with them. The second episode of the season brings us a woman who gives birth just days after her husband leaves. That’s sure to bring some mixed emotions, so is it really that surprising that she turns out to be a difficult patient?
Call the Midwife Season 13 premieres on Sunday, March 17 at 8/7c on PBS.
