Welcome to the fourth installment of Netflix & Needlepoint featuring “Call the Midwife.” A BBC series on Netflix that follows a group of midwives, comprised of 20 somethings and nuns, as they make their rounds through the East End of London in the 1950s and 1960s.
I was still living in Washington DC when one of my best friends, Meredith, kept bugging me to watch “Call the Midwife.” She described it as deeply touching, and full of hope. It sounded too good to be true, so naturally I did not tune in. I hate being disappointed.
Fast forward to six months later, I was living at home with my mother and starting Lycette. I was scared about what the future held, and was in desperate need of something comforting. I gave into Meredith’s incessant recommendation and began “Call the Midwife.”
I was immediately hooked! Meredith was right, “Call the Midwife” was both touching and hopeful. Even though I cried every episode I felt uplifted by the end. It had the same effect as a warm cup of milky tea, or a soulful talk with a friend.
“Call the Midwife” is the perfect Netflix & Needlepoint show. The characters are lovable, and the dialogue is overflowing with soulful quotes that anyone can relate to! I double dare you not to adore the perfectly imperfect character Chummy.
So grab a cuppa tea, your favorite needlepoint, and tuck into a heart warming episode of “Call the Midwife.” I can promise you will be happy you did.
