Junior Registrar Dr Carly Sinclair was shocked when Alexander Braikovitch, a large Russian-speaking man, marched uninvited into her Delivery Room and spoke soothingly to the terrified mother-to-be. It took a few minute to discover that he was a doctor and only wanted to help. Carly’s second shock came when she realised how powerful the instant attraction between them was. Carly didn’t want to get involved. She learned of the tragedy in Alex’s life, of the hardships of his work. Then she decided she wanted this man as a partner – and together they could have the baby that both of them wished for.
