Call the Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times by Jennifer Worth
This book is comprised of Jennifer Worth's stories as she bikes around 1950s London as a midwife. She meets some really interesting families, especially the mother expecting her 24th child! There are also some pretty gross descriptions in this book, so if you don't like reading about blood or bodily functions, you should probably stay away.
There is a PBS series based on Call the Midwife, and although my mom likes the show, I am not planning on watching it because I cannot stand watching shows that have squalor, and I'm pretty sure there would be scenes with squalor.
