‘Call the Midwife’ recap: What happened in Season 10 Episode 5?

The tenth season of Call the Midwife continued in the UK tonight!

Following last year’s filming delay due to the coronavirus pandemic, seven brand new episodes are finally here.

The hit period drama series about a group of nurse midwives in the East End of London first aired in 2012, based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth.

The new season of Call the Midwife will premiere in the US later this year on PBS.

Here’s a plot recap for the fifth episode, which aired on BBC One at 8pm on Sunday 16th May 2021:

With sister Hilda away on a refresher course, sister Julienne steps in to carry out home visits.

The new pupil midwives are settling in well, and there is a sense of hope in the air.

While examining expectant mother Vera Sands during a routine visit, sister Julienne is concerned by her toddler daughter who is displaying troubling symptoms.

Determined to find out what’s wrong, sister Julienne and doctor Turner are on the case.

Meanwhile, an overly protective mother struggles to cope with her daughter’s teenage pregnancy and is insistent on keeping it low key, much to the frustration of new pupil midwife Nancy Corrigan.

Season 9 is available on DVD on Amazon.
