Call the Midwife: Season 2.

Based on the bestselling memoirs by Jennifer Worth, Call the Midwife follows Jenny Lee, a young midwife in 195s London's working class East End, as she provides the poorest women with the best possible care. New challenges and traumas await Jenny and the other midwives in season two including a strange woman dressed in rags, an abandoned baby, and the introduction of a new pain- killer, gas, which proves such a hit that all the women want some. A fascinating portrayal of birth, life, death and a community on the brink of huge social change, Call the Midwife offers a gripping insight into a way of life that is so drastically different from how we live now.

Wonderful Series
I'm only sorry it's over.  I'll definitely watch it again.  The whole thing is definitely about love and connection.  It made me glad to be a human and a woman.  And I enjoyed revisiting the 50's as I'm 73 y.o. this year.  The fact that they rode bicycles was rather amazing as I'm an American and automobiles have been a part of my life from the start!
