Sexually frustrated Rob is disappointed when Sharon's psychologist doesn't prescribe sex as the treatment for her post-natal depression.

While the prescription of antidepressants is not good news for Rob's libido, it's better news for Sharon who's now suitably numbed and able to return to the world of mother and baby classes. Unfortunately, in her absence, Sharon's only 'mum friend' Sam has gone AWOL leaving her alone with the 'mombies'.

Meanwhile, at Rob's work things take an exciting upturn with the introduction of a hot new French colleague Olivia. But when their harmless flirting becomes an indecent proposal, Rob is thrown into complete turmoil. For Sharon, a chance encounter with Sam leads to a difficult rejection.

Notes

Susannah Fielding's character was erroneously named as 'Samatha' in the credits.
