Tefillah for the husband when his wife enters the 3rd and 9th month of pregnancy (Tefillot Mulder 1857 page 162). This is read silently. 
When the wife enters the 9th month of her pregnancy, the husband gets Abrira, and in front of the open hechal he says silently a special tefila (Tefillot Mulder 1857 page 163)

Pidyon HaBen
Bar / Bat Mitzvah

HaGomeel: sometimes one must say the beracha of haGomeel (הגומל), green tefillot, page 209. This beracha can be said when a man is called to the Torah or before the open hechal. To be able to say haGomeel, there must be a minjan. 
A lady who says haGomeel comes down after the service. She herself opens the hechal to say the haGomeel. The chazzan will say the pregao (מי שברך), after which the lady closes the hechal.

The service is as usual, not as at the aveel’s home. At the end of the services צידיק הדין, השכבה בילע המות are added (short haschava). In the morning this replaces the verses עץ חיים, ended with קדיש יהא שלמא by all avelim.
