Call the Midwife
Many colourful characters are described in the stories but I think the most remarkable was a woman who had 25 children. Her 25th was born very premature weighing only 1lb 10oz (the mother had a bad fall that precipitated the labour), but the mother was able to keep the baby alive by always having it snugged up to her breasts and feeding the baby drops of milk every half-hour. What love and dedication. No wonder her husband adored her.
PBS has made a TV series based on the book which I think is going to be aired this winter.
