About this deal

The chapters were Jenny described her own personal experience or those of patients she grew very close to were the most interesting. Whereas the stories about the people she knew second hand from other people read more like fiction than fact and weren't quite as engrossing. Should Doris have allowed Cyril to send away the baby she bore illegitimately? Did she have a choice?

While this sounds horrific, these kids were much better off than the orphaned ones. They went to “the workhouse”, where they were separated from their siblings and raised in what was the equivalent of prison.

I regret that I have not been able to get to know the men of the East End. But it is quite impossible. I belong to the women's world, to the taboo subject of childbirth. The men are polite and respectful to us midwives, but completely withdrawn from any familiarity, let alone friendship. There is a total divide between what is called men's work and women's work. So, like Jane Austen, who in her writing never recorded a conversation between two men alone, because as a woman she could not know what exclusively male conversation would be like, I cannot record much about the men of Poplar, beyond superficial observation."She is survived by her beloved husband Philip, their daughters, and three grandchildren, Dan, Lydia and Eleanor.
