‘Call the Midwife’ recap: What happened in Season 11 Episode 6?

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

Following the recent festive special, we’re heading back to Poplar this winter for eight brand new episodes.

The BBC’s 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.

Last year the show celebrated its tenth anniversary and a beautiful new book compiled by Dr Turner actor Stephen McGann, titled A Labour of Love: Ten Years of Call the Midwife, is out in February.

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

Here’s a plot recap for the sixth episode, which aired on BBC One at 8pm on Sunday 6th February 2022:

It’s October 1967, which brings new beginnings with Nurse Crane away on an exciting adventure of a lifetime and Trixie taking care of her godmother in Portofino.

Sister Hilda runs a tight ship, and Shelagh has joined the team to ease their busy workload.

Lucille prepares for her first day back at work but is clearly not coping well, despite the support of the team.

Sister Monica Joan is spooked to find a black raven in the parlour, believing its presence to be an omen.

Seeking interpretation of the raven’s meaning, Sister Monica Joan connects with Dulcie Greenhlagh, an eccentric East End clairvoyant, but soon realises there is another reason they were destined to meet.

Matthew discovers one of his warehouses is being used by squatters, including a heavily pregnant woman.

Shelagh faces the most challenging delivery of her career.
