Call the Midwife Wiki

Ivy Jackson was the mother of Reggie Jackson and the cousin of Fred Buckle. She was played by Kate Williams.


Ivy Jackson was a seamstress whom Nurse Beatrix Franklin was a frequent customer of. Cocktail dresses were her specialty, and Trixie recommended her to her colleague Barbara Gilbert when she was looking for a new frock. Ivy tells Barbara that Trixie is one of her best customers, adding "She keeps the wolf from the door, all right".

Before she goes out she tells Reggie that she will be back at half past twelve and she makes him point at the clock to make sure he understands. At church she suffers a major heart attack and is deceased before she hits the floor, leaving Reggie behind.
