Call the Midwife Season 7 launched on the BBC in January 2018 and the last episode has just been screened. We have info about when it will be streaming on Netflix in the US.
Call the Midwife follows the nurses, midwives and nuns from Nonnatus House, who visit the expectant mothers of Poplar, providing the poorest women with the best possible care.
Following the Second World War, the east end of London was poverty-stricken and people were living in slums; many of the inhabitants were still untrusting of the free National Health Service. And, of course, modern medical techniques were a long way off. The midwives live and work in this community and the series tells the heartwarming stories of the developing relationships between themselves, the nuns in the convent and their patients.
Amidst the most difficult circumstances, Call the Midwife offers plenty of gentle humor and morality tales.
What to expect in Season 7
We’re entering modern times with new innovations and Nonnatus House welcomes its newest midwife, Lucille Anderson, to start 1963.
It’s a new era with the introduction of birth control and the sexual revolution. We’ll see plenty of new situations, including men in motherhood classes!
Other contemporary issues including abortion, birth defects, poverty, prostitution, incest, religion, racism, alcoholism, disability, homosexuality and female genital mutilation are still debated strongly in this new season.
Netflix Release Date
So what does this mean for its arrival on Netflix? Of course, we can’t be sure but series 6 aired over the same period last year and arrived on Netflix in September. So, if they follow the same release pattern, there’s your answer: September 2018.
