Packed to the Rafters Season 2 Episode 5

Painful memories surface for Dave as he and Julie confront the potentially heartbreaking results of tests on their unborn child.

Pregnant late in life, the chances of Julie and Dave’s child having Down Syndrome are already high – but the results of preliminary ultrasound indicates those chances are even higher. Although they must wait for blood tests to confirm, Julie and Dave find themselves contemplating a likely future as parents of a child with a disability. Julie, though rattled, reminds Dave they have already made their decision about the baby – as far as she’s concerned, they’re having the child, no matter what.

Julie wants to start researching Down Syndrome so they can plan for the future. But Dave’s response stuns her. He doesn’t want to research anything until the results are confirmed – and worse of all, he’s not sure they should have the child if it turns out to have the disability.

As his marriage comes under strain, Dave is forced to examine his reasons for not wanting the child. He digs into previously buried memories – and finally realises that his reaction to the baby is based on fear…fear that his child will suffer the same rejection and isolation Dave suffered as a child.
