The midwives are involved in the annual Summer Fete with the introduction of a baby show.
The whole Poplar community pulls together to prepare for the annual Summer Fete. This year, with the introduction of a baby show, the midwives will be more involved than ever, especially Trixie, who assumes responsibility for securing a celebrity judge. At the ante-natal clinic, Jenny meets Nora, 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.
