The nuns and midwives of Nonnatus House move into their new premises, and Sister Winifred, a warm-hearted, slightly innocent young woman, arrives from the Mother House.

New housewife and mother Chummy spearheads an Open Day at the Community Centre. After helping to deliver a neighbor’s baby, she decides she wants to return to midwifery.
