Call The Midwife Season 13 Episode 5

It’s the summer of 1969, and there’s a buzz of excitement as Violet gets ready for the first-ever beach outing – a significant event since she took on the role of mayor.

Even with the dreadful weather at the beach, spirits are high. However, the mood shifts suddenly when Lindy starts her labour. Nurse Crane and Miss Higgins quickly take Lindy back to the maternity home. The birth goes smoothly, but Lindy and her partner, Melvin, are left reeling from an unexpected diagnosis.
