Show Synopsis

Anticipation is building for a new royal baby, and community-minded Violet is holding a Teddy Bears’ Picnic and raising funds through a competition on whether the Queen will have a boy or a girl.

With the addition of the two new Sisters and the return of Trixie, Nonnatus House “feels full once more”.

But when the midwives are introduced to their new midwifery bags, old Sister Monica Joan becomes distressed as her dementia takes a turn for the worse.
