A maternity ward, staffed by sympathetic nurses, serves mothers-to-be from all walks of life. These include a happy mother of a large family; a secretly-married teenager who thinks their parents won't approve of either their children's marriage or baby; a woman who is trying for a living child despite a history of stillbirths; a showgirl who doesn't want a child, and who is shocked to find she is having twins; and a convicted murderess whose husband is forced to choose between saving her or the baby.Written by

Nice tearjerker with a good cast centers on a hospital maternity ward and the various expectant mothers there. Among the moms-to-be are Geraldine Fitzgerald, Gladys George, Gloria Holden, and Spring Byington. Gale Page holds it all together as the sympathetic head nurse. Rest of the cast includes Jeffrey Lynn, Eve Arden, John Litel, and Johnnie Davis. This is a remake of a great Pre-Code film called Life Begins, which starred Loretta Young. That film was grittier and less glossy than this one. Frankly, I like it more although this one is certainly enjoyable. I recommend checking them both out to see two different approaches to the same material.
