Call The Midwife Bike Brigade Tours Minneapolis, St. Paul

Based on the best-selling memoirs of Jennifer Worth, Call the Midwife, the highest-rated new drama debut in BBC history, is a moving and intimate story of midwifery in London’s East End in the 1950s.

Call the Midwife premieres Sunday, September 30 at 7 p.m. on tpt 2, tells the story of Jenny Lee, a young woman raised in the wealthy English countryside, has chosen to become a nurse and now, as a newly qualified midwife, has gone to work in the poorest area of the city.

When she first arrives in London’s East End, she knows nothing about hardship, poverty or indeed, life itself. Attached to an order of nursing nuns at Nonnatus House, Jenny is part of a team of midwives who visit the expectant mothers of Poplar, providing the poorest women with the best possible care.

Call the Midwife is a fascinating portrayal of birth, life, death and a community on the brink of huge social change, offering a gripping insight into a world that is so drastically different from how we live now.

To celebrate the premiere of Call the Midwife on tpt this month, a bike brigade took a tour of Minneapolis to let people know about the highly-rated BBC show. Check out the pictures below from their tour.
