Call The Midwife: Series 4 Episode 5- Brittle Bone Disease

February 16, 2015

I’ve watched Call The Midwife with great interest and enjoyment for the last four years. I’m pleased to say the programme has often covered disability in that time, from all perspectives- mothers, children, becoming disabled and disabled adults.

Last night’s episode was no exception- a mother who refused medicine for her baby on religious grounds turned out to have a child born with Brittle Bone Disease, which was, as it sadly still sometimes is, mistaken for child abuse.

You can watch the episode on Iplayer here for a month, if you wish.
