Barbara and Tom go to the aid of a prostitute, who has been bitten by her assailant - the first of a series of similar vicious attacks on women. The culprit is caught, largely due to information from his latest victim - one of the midwives whose experience causes a crisis of faith. Middle-aged Thora Hills tells the nurses she is expecting another child but is secretly covering for pregnant unmarried daughter Diane, abandoned by her baby's father. Trixie and Sister Mary Cynthia have to act quickly to avoid disaster when Thora attempts a home birth to maintain the secrecy - and matters are not helped by elderly Dr Godfrey, who has come out of retirement to allow Dr Turner a much-deserved holiday.
