In brief: Postive support
Your partner can help you by breathing with your during your contractions, helping you focus on deep, slow breaths.
It is also helpful to start a warm bath, or go for an gentle walk outside. Positive feedback always helps. Labor is called "labor" for a reason, and it is wonderful to have a supportive team help you at each stage.
