A well-spoken couple arrives in the East End; the wife is pregnant but she has a headache, so she joins the oiks at the NHS clinic in the parish hall for a check-up. But a noisy slattern takes exception to the posh lady, who storms out. Thus a train of events is set in motion that gives gentle midwife Cynthia (Bryony Hannah) the biggest emotional test of her young life.
There is light relief as Chummy (Miranda Hart) takes her relationship with Constable Noakes a bit further and her colleagues give her tips on being coquettish. But the smiles fade when a young dad looks into his baby daughter’s pram. She’s not there.
A baby girl, recently delivered by Jenny, is snatched from her pram, uniting the community in a desperate search for the missing child. A newlywed couple are excited about becoming parents - but when the wife develops a serious medical condition, their chances of happiness are jeopardised. Jessica Raine, Bryony Hannah and Miranda Hart star in the 1950s-set nursing drama, with Thomasin Rand and Tom Goodman-Hill.
