William and Mary

I’m a sucker forĀ movies, books, and TV shows featuring midwifery. I’m also a sucker for BBC shows. One little gem that has largely escaped notice is calledĀ William and Mary. It’s a love story of a midwife and an undertaker–which are actually intricately connected throughout history–and features Julie Graham and Martin Clunes. In true BBC fashion, it’s only three short seasons–which makes it perfect for binge-watching.

It can be streamed on Amazon, but not Netflix (they have the first two seasons on DVD).

What are some of your favorite birthy or midwifey shows, books, and movies?
