Hi My sister had 2 home births in 1972 and 1974 on the Isle Of Dogs. Her first delivery was by a nun called Sister Marie Claire, who was such a lovely person. I remember her calling me up to the bedroom to see my niece and putting her into my arms I was one of the first people to hold her I was 8 years old. Does anyone else remember her, it would be interesting to know.
Also I agree with other people in the fact that not all of the East End was slums, we lived in a very nice 2 bedroom masionette!!
