"I think Call the Midwife has influenced society and midwifery," says Nurse Trixie Franklin actress Helen George in the short clip. "As a country, as a society, we're getting better at talking about women's issues so I definitely think it feeds into that movement of being able to talk about things that we weren't allowed to talk about."
Leonie Elliott, who plays Nurse Lucille Anderson, added: "We bow down to midwives, and to women generally, don't we? Well, we should."
Meanwhile, Laura Main, who plays nurse Shelagh Turner, added: "We just see kindness portrayed on the screen and I think, for a long time, that we maybe weren't seeing that on our TV screens and I don't think we were valuing it as a society either."
The show follows a group of midwives in the 1950s and 1960s, working in the East End of London and is based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth.
The show's upcoming series was teased a few days ago, with a short trailer giving us a glimpse of what to expect.
The 30-second clip teased Cyril and Lucille's romance, Dr Turner wanting answers and the possibility that Nonnatus House may be going private.
