Jennifer Worth was born Jennifer Lee in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex on September 25, 1935. She trained as a nurse at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, and then moved to London to train as a midwife. She later worked at the Royal London Hospital, the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital in Euston, and the Marie Curie Hospital in Hampstead. She left nursing in 1973 to study music. She received the Licentiate of the London College of Music in 1974 and was awarded a Fellowship ten years later. She taught and performed solo and in choirs throughout the United Kingdom and Europe. When she felt her musical talents ebbing, she turned to writing. She wrote three books about her experience as a midwife: Call the Midwife, Shadows of the Workhouse, and Farewell to the East End. These books are the basis of the BBC television series Call the Midwife. Her other works include Food Allergy: The Hidden Cause? and In the Midst of Life. She died of cancer on May 31, 2011 at the age of 75. (Bowker Author Biography)

Jennifer Worth, née Lee, was born in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, where her parents were on vacation, and grew up in Buckinghamshire. She left school at age 15 and learned shorthand and typing to become a secretary. She then decided to train as a nurse instead, and studied at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, before moving to London to receive further training as a midwife. She was hired as a staff nurse at the London Hospital in the poverty-stricken East End. In the early 1950s, she worked with the Sisters of St. John the Divine, a community of Anglican nuns, helping poor women and their babies. She worked later at the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital in Bloomsbury, and at the Marie Curie Hospital in Hampstead. In 1963, she married Philip Worth, an artist, and had two daughters. Jennifer Worth retired from nursing in 1973 to pursue her musical interests. She taught piano and singing at the London College of Music, and performed as a soloist and with choirs throughout the UK and Europe. In 2002, she published the first volume of what would become a trilogy of her memoirs, entitled Call the Midwife -- it became a bestseller. Shadows of the Workhouse (2005) and Farewell to the East End (2009) also became bestsellers. A fourth book, In the Midst of Life, published in 2010, described her later experiences caring for the terminally ill.
