comment Should every page in a site have a totally unique H1?
Since the steps are mere pages, move all the complexity, use the page name part of your title as the H1. The concept of "steps" doesn't apply here, it's not a process, just a series of related topics or concepts.

comment Should every page in a site have a totally unique H1?
@MarcusT if the pages are just pages and not part of a linear app ten your page title and the h1 for the first page should be "pregnancy planner" for step 1 it should just be "trying for a baby". You don't need all the extra guff and streamlined headings and titles will help your SEO :)

comment Should every page in a site have a totally unique H1?
Meta and page descriptions describe the page you are on. H1 headings should introduce the most important part of each "chunk" of information on a screen, in the case of a portal with multi portlets on a page, multiple H1s would be entirely appropriate.
