Episode one sees the midwives tackle an unexpected outbreak of diphtheria. The bacterial disease produces a powerful toxin which damages organs and tissues throughout the body.

As well as tackling this outbreak, the ladies of Nonnatus House have to help find the mum of a baby after Fred discovers the tiny tot in a dustbin.
