For the sixth consecutive year, Frontier Nursing University hosted free a reception and screening event of the hit PBS show, “Call the Midwife,” Season 7 on March 22, 2018.
The PBS drama “Call the Midwife” follows the nurses, midwives and nuns from Nonnatus House, who visit the expectant mothers of the deprived Poplar district of London’s desperately poor East End, providing the poorest women with the best possible care. Season 7 premiered on PBS on March 15, 2018.
Frontier Nursing University (FNU) has been involved with the show since the program’s inception, with a rich history during the early days of midwifery. FNU faculty member Katie Moriarty, PhD, CNM, CAFCI, FACNM, RN is one of four experienced midwives who partner with PBS and Detroit Public Television to discuss their role in modern obstetrics in relation to “Call the Midwife,” which takes place in the 1950s and 1960s. As a “Modern Day Midwives Blogger” for the show’s website, Moriarty contributes valuable knowledge of midwifery as it relates to FNU in regular blog posts.
The Season 7 screening event, held at the Kentucky Educational Television (KET) Studio in Lexington, Ky., included a reception with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beverages leading up to the screening. Several dozen “Call the Midwife” fans, FNU supporters, and friends from the community enjoyed getting together and chatting about the most exciting season yet!
