Sister Julienne and Trixie go to Holloway prison to stand in for sick nursing staff and are appalled by the lack of care for the inmates, who are expected to work though heavily pregnant. Sister Julienne is especially concerned for unmarried Stella Crangle, fearful that her baby will be taken from her, and makes arrangements to help her on release. Back at Poplar Kathleen Baker risks her health and that of her unborn child by putting her appearance first to please her husband whilst the nurses celebrate Chummy's birthday and Shelagh, as a former TB patient, is afraid that it has made her infertile.
