520    Life in London's docklands in the 1950s was tough. The 
       brothels of Cable Street, the Kray brothers and gang 
       warfare, the meths drinkers in the bombsites-this was the 
       world that Jennifer Worth entered when she became a 
       midwife at the age of twenty-two. Babies were born in slum
       conditions, often with no running water. Jennifer Worth 
       describes the romance and beauty of the great port of 
       London, the bug-infested tenements, the spectre of disease,
       the sense of community and the incredible resilience of 
       women who bore more than ten children. Funny, disturbing 
       and moving, Call the Midwife brings to life a world that 
       has now changed beyond measure.
