ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- Once you're able to work unaided

I am rendered surplus to requirements,

I will go home to the mother house

when you're able to prove yourself as a member of staff.

(phone rings)

Nonatus House, midwife speaking.

(playful instrumental music)

Go home to your wife and tell her help is on the way.

(playful instrumental music)

Mrs. Constance Blakemore,

second baby, no complications noted.

Just the job for you.

- I hope so.

- Well chop chop, child.

(light instrumental music)

Don't forget our most essential instruments.

(playful instrumental music)

Courage and humility.

If you leaven one with the other, you cannot fail.

(playful instrumental music)

- Can you manage, Sister?

- I'm managing perfectly well.

Thank you.
