The whole Poplar community pulls together to prepare for the annual summer fete. This year, with the introduction of a baby show, the Nonnatus House midwives will be more involved than ever - especially Trixie, who assumes responsibility for securing a celebrity judge.

For others, though, life is far less festive. At the antenatal clinic Jenny meets Nora Harding, an impoverished mother of eight, who is distraught that she may soon have another mouth to feed. Jenny's attempts to reassure her fall on deaf ears, and a desperate Nora takes matters into her own hands - with disastrous consequences.
