A year after retiring from Leeds General, midwife Linda Abbott she realised she missed working at the hospital, and the hospital missed her. She may be an 'old bird' but she has years of experience. Two dads with extremely different bedside manners are in the maternity wards in this episode. Joel dotes on his wife Rachel and wants there just to be the two of them in the delivery room. Their first son was born prematurely and died 25 days later. Meanwhile, Chris admits he doesn't have a clue what to do in his role as birth partner, and his attempt to use humour to deal with his nerves fails to go down well in the delivery room.
