Barbara receives a letter from her father who says he's going to be posted to New Guinea for three years. Having always wanted her father to be the one who married her, Barbara doesn't want to have to wait three years before walking down the aisle, so she and Tom agree to bring the date for the wedding forward so that Barbara's father can marry them before his departure. Meanwhile, a mother who has been taking the contraceptive pill without her husband's knowledge develops a pulmonary embolism and later dies, sparking concerns over the safety of the medication. Trixie agrees to meet Christopher's daughter. Also, Shelagh goes into labour and, with the help of Patrick and Sister Julienne, she gives birth to a baby boy. At the end of the episode, Patsy returns from Hong Kong and pledges her love for Delia.

Sister Julienne: Nurse Gilbert said she'd given you the "Breathe Your Way to Serenity" leaflet.

Shelagh: I made a list of things to do on it.

Sister Julienne: (laughs) You never could sit still. Even when you first came to us as a postulant.

Shelagh: God seemed to be asking so many things of me. I tried to do them all, even when I wasn't sure I was succeeding.
