Storyline

Dr. Welby helps a young, pregnant woman come to terms with her past - namely, a past relationship she had concealed from her husband. Her previous pregnancy was ended by abortion - after she develops complications late in her third trimester. When Welby tells the husband about his wife's past (she was just a teenager when she was pregnant before), the man is furious and wants to leave his wife, but Welby sets him straight.

Trivia

Dr. Welby makes several personal revelations in this episode; (1) He was a ship's doctor in the Navy. (2) His daughter and her husband are living in Peru and waiting a few years before starting a family. (3) When his brother was serving in the Pacific, his sister-in-law lost their second child three days after birth due to the Rh factor in the blood. This tragedy is what motivates Dr. Welby to be so vigilant in diagnosing it. See more »
