Vivien Feryn has no way of knowing that her career in social work will lead her to the door of an eccentric herbalist. Actually, it is probably a good thing, as she needs some healing herself. She can't quite handle the "social" aspect of her work.or private life for that matter. A childhood trauma haunts her.
Her emotional distance from the world will be short lived though, as Fringe needs to find a replacement fast, and she decides on Vivien. Can the unsuspecting Vivien handle endings as well as Fringe, or will there be a midwife crisis in the community?
