When we first met Juliet she was in the early days of pregnancy and working hard, using smoking and drinking to relax. Her stress levels were off the scale. Six months later, Juliet will soon give birth and her life has changed. "I like the new boring me. It's been difficult. I mean we've had ups and downs during the way, you know. The 'detox' in the beginning was difficult." For Zara, junk food is out and healthy nutritious meals are in. Although unrelated to Zara's previously unhealthy diet, daughter Neive was born with a hole in her heart and underwent life-saving surgery. Lisa is concerned about Zara having bonding issues with her baby so takes her to an infant massage class and witnesses an instant breakthrough.The arrival of baby girl Ava finally provides motivation for Amy and Andy to quit smoking for good.
