Home Ressources Internet Abbreviations


I am a strong proponent of changing some of the old terms and abbreviations into more affirming ones.

It's fun, too. Some of them I try to change consciously while speaking with clients, others I change with documentation as well:

  • EDC - Expected Date of Childbirth
  • EDB - Expected Date of Birth
  • Blighted Ovum - Terminal Embryo
  • Incompetent Cervix - Undecided Cervix or Cervical Expansion
  • FTP - Finding the Passage
  • Failure To Progress - Reduction Of Progress Toward Birth (ROPTB)
  • CPD - Childbirth Passage Difficulty
  • Cephalo Pelvic Disproportion - Passenger/Passage Puzzle (PPP)
