It is a good site to provide the lay person with information regarding pregnancy and childbirth, but the amount of information can be overwhelming.  For many of the definitions it links the lay person to which isn't an authorative site.  They should include definitions on the site instead of a link to another reference site.

Technical Remarks:

Some of the links do not connect to a valid address.
