I don't know about the non-Palm OS software.  What I
know of is the Palm OS software devices (Palm and
Visor) and those are both capable of handling the
"medical" type software you are referring to.
I know there are database programs that you can create
your own birth log, etc.  The PDR, herbals, etc, etc. 
There's an EDC calculator (maybe more than 1 type) but
I don't like it...I'm a purist and ALWAYS use Nagele's
rule to calculate the EDC and it uses its own internal
"wheel" and sometimes is off a day or two...ARGGH!

They great fun though and so convenient.  I was
carrying a big old 8.5" x 11" binder/planner that was
always overpacked w/ garbage.  This keeps me free of
all that junk!

Get one!
