Wear the uniform.
Being a midwife in the 1950s isn't for the faint-hearted. But if you think what you have to join the ranks of the women of Nonnatus House, sign up and start cataloguing what the San Francisco Chronicle has called a most "poignant and often heartbreaking" television show. This wikia is looking not just for basic character and plot information. It seeks to have an article about every place, object, building and medical concept in the series. Help us make this the web's most complete resource on the people of Poplar!
