The truth is that many dads really enjoy childbirth class. It is a time for them to go and prepare to help mom as she's giving birth. In childbirth class dad will learn about:
- basics of labor
- comfort measures to help ease pain for mom
- what happens at the hospital
- what pain relief methods are available
- possibly even a hospital tour
These are all confidence builders for dad. The trick is to remember to practice outside of your childbirth class, do the assignments and take it seriously.
