The midwives discover that a young Down Syndrome woman is six months pregnant, leading to difficult confessions and decisions.

This includes overseeing the arrangements for Sister Evangelina's surprise jubilee celebrations. But the atmosphere turns sour when a lemon meringue pie goes missing. Patsy, a new nurse, arrives at Nonnatus House. Her no nonsense, hard-working attitude and sense of humor mean she's an immediate hit with the nuns and midwives.

When she learns that he has taken a turn for the worse, Jenny leaves immediately for the hospital. Shelagh takes over the local choir and helps bring it back to life.
