private practice geffri maya chris lowell audra mcdonald 320 'Private Practice': Pregnancy, pregnancy everywhereMaya’s back and she’s gigantically pregnant and meeting with her midwife, Dell (also back, though sadly not for long, it seems).

As they’re waiting at the ER, an ambulance pulls up with a driver from a car wreck. Sam’s needed to operate, so Addison’s there when the Air Life helicopter brings the “people from the other car.” Dell gets out, walking, with his arm in a sling, and they wheel Maya on a stretcher.
