  • Rearranged the Behaviors and Feelings and Descent and Cardinal Movements pages.
  • Simplified medical induction bishop score information.
  • Moved the Water for Labor and Birth page.
  • Simplified the Positions for Labor pages.
  • Added pages for Doula Services and Comfort Preferences.
  • Moved the Baby Blues or PPMD? page.
