Shelagh Turner is in her early 30's.

As a nun and midwife she had a fresh, uncomplicated approach to her work and connected well with Jenny and her other younger colleagues.

In Season Two, Sister Bernadette questioned her chosen vocation. After recovering from TB, she made the intrepid decision to leave the order of St Raymond Nonnatus in order to marry Dr Turner.

In Season Three, Shelagh continues to work in a part time capacity at the Mother and Baby Clinic as well as enjoy family life with Dr Turner and Timothy.
