In the war-torn slums of a Midland city, young Nurse Compton works as a Midwife. She goes out alone onto the dark, and often inhospitable, streets of the city with nothing more to guide and guard her than her trust in the profession. She is yet to complete her training, and under the guidance of a strict, but experiences, midwife, 12 babies must be delivered, and accurate records of all events must be kept by her if she is to become a midwife. To this end she keeps her case notes. Carrying all essential equipment with her on a trusty, old black bicycle she encounters seedy slums, city brothers, Hitler's bomb sites, post-war council estates, and the genteel hanging on by their teeth.With fortitude, medical, social and sometimes personal knowledge, 12 babies are successfully bought into the world, and families struggle to accommodate the new. The young nurse is often surprised by people, and she meets characters who are not that they seem to be - including her friends. With her "Pupil Midwife Care Book" completed, and experience to spare, she enters the examination room hall, but the unexpected has not finished with her yet.
