A pregnant Dr. Annie Watson (Haylie Duff) is going to stay with her best friend, Dr. Belinda Owens (Sarah Jones) while husband, Peter, is off on a surveying job. Annie's mother-in-law, Mary (Patty Duke), a seen-it-all midwife whose homeopathic remedies and folksy wisdom are at odds with Belinda’s scientific knowledge, comes along. As Belinda deals with the headaches Mary is causing, she must also address issues at home. While her adopted daughter Lillian (Courtney Halverson) discovers the joys and pains of a first love, Belinda and her husband, Lee (Jordan Bridges), find their own relationship is suffering over Belinda’s inability to get pregnant. Just as the town learned to put its faith in Belinda as their doctor, so too must Belinda learn to accept that the best guidance for her own problems may come from unlikely sources. As the movie ends we find Annie had a little girl, despite everyones intentions that it was a boy, and names her Melinda (Lindy). Mary is about to hop into the buggy to leave when Belinda whispers something in her ear. Her husband askes what she said, to which she replies " Oh, just telling her I'll need a mid-wife soon," a remark that she is pregnant.
