Call the Midwife Wiki

Wilma Goddens was a mother of three daughters who died after developing a pulmonary embolism after taking the contraceptive pill. She was played by Olivia Darnley.


After the birth of her third daughter, Wilma didn't want any more children, but knew her husband Trevor, being a man's man, desperately wanted a son, so, unknown to Trevor, she went on the contraceptive pill. Wilma kept her pills in her handbag, knowing Trevor would never look in it. However, unbeknownst to Wilma, taking the pill would have grave consequences.
