A pregnant Dr. Annie Watson is going to stay with her best friend, Dr. Belinda Owens while her husband Peter is off on a surveying job. Annie's mother-in-law Mary, a seen-it-all midwife whose homeopathic remedies and folksy wisdom are at odds with Belinda's scientific knowledge, comes along. As Belinda deals with the headaches Mary is causing, she must also address issues at home. While her adopted daughter Lillian, discovers the joys and pains of first love, Belinda and her husband Lee, find their own relationship suffering over Belinda's inability to get pregnant.

This was pretty much your standard made for TV low budget yawner. It was painfully clear that the theme of this movie was on women's empowerment as the main characters where all very independent with offish male counterparts added in out of necessity.
The writing was bad with most characters taking on paper thin stereotypes with lines so predictable that you could watch it without sound and miss very little.
The casting was no better with a female doctor who looked all of 22 who was to be the mother of another who looked no younger than 20 herself. Acting serious seems to be no substitute for real maturity and as a result, the doctor was almost laughable.
In the end, all was joyous, as one must expect from this kind of bone grinder. No surprises but you could pump your fist in the air and say triumphantly that "women rule"!
