The Real Nuns of "Call the Midwife"

Blog Published: September 3, 2013

I recently came an article from 2012 with the real-life nuns that have served as consultants to the show Call the Midwife. They are a group of seven Anglican sisters from the Community of Saint John the Divine. The community was founded in 1848 as a "nursing sisterhood" working with Florence Nightingale, London's East End, and then Birmingham where they've lived since 1976.
