A powerful and uplifting new drama series, Love Child tells the stories of young women and men fighting an unjust system in a world on the brink of change.

It’s 1969 in Kings Cross and Joan Millar (Jessica Marais), a smart and sophisticated midwife, returns home from London to take a job at the Kings Cross Hospital. Joan finds a new life for herself, at a time when Australia is coming of age and the new generation believes anything is possible in this time of ‘free love and peace’.

Jonathan LaPaglia plays the charismatic Dr Patrick McNaughton, head of obstetrics at Kings Cross Hospital, and Mandy McElhinney plays Frances Bolton, the tough matron who also controls the running of Stanton House, an adjacent home for unwed pregnant young women.

Their lives intersect between the Hospital, Stanton House and the wild streets of Kings Cross beyond the hospital walls.
